Question Final Specs....Any Objections? hehe

Heya, im getting ready to put the order through for my Girlfriends new PC....hows all this look...
Mobo: MSI K8N Neo4-F socket 939 here
CPU: AMD Ath. 64 3700+ San Diego here
GPU: eVGA GeForce 7800GT 256mb here
HDD: Seagate Cuda 7200.7 SATA 120gb here
PSU: Aspire 500w here
RAM: Patriot Sig Series 1gig (2x512) here

I know the PSU probably isnt that well reccomended but i did some research and i think it will be fine. We plan on OC'ing the system somewhat and are wanting to run all the current games on max settings. Thanks a ton.

looks good to me. If your oc'ing you might want to invest in better ram.

There is nothing wrong with patriot, but you could find some RAM with better timings. It will cost a little bit more but allows you better overclocks.

I'm not saying it's bad at all, in fact its really good. I'm simply saying that if you want to get farther in your overclocking, you should invest in better ram. You really don't need to though, in fact, just stick with the patriot.

You have $60 for a power supply so choose one of these instead: a little more...but worth it.
