Post Gaming Build

Hi, I'm coming back to the computer scene again after about a year, and am a little out of date with the new computer hardware out. I'am going to be building a mild gaming build. So here is what I've choose so far.

Motherboard
DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D
$129.99

Processor
AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego
$233.00

Memory
OCZ Performance Series 1GB (2 x 512MB)
$103.44

Hard Drive
Western Digital Caviar SE 80GB SATA150
$53.00

Power Supply
RAIDMAX 530W
$84.50

Video Card
eVGA Geforce 6800GS 256MB PCI-E
$199.00

TOTAL:$803.92

I would like to stay around the price range that these items are in, but if you think something should be changed, hopefully kind of around the final price of all this. Thanks.

Bad power supply, go for antec, or enermax.

Alright, I didn't really know what brand to buy, but I couldn't find about $100 Antec or Enermax power supplies with a 24-pin connector.

Any 20+4 pin connector will work fine. Go for the Antec TruepowerII 550W.

Looks like a good build, but as suggested above, try to get an antec, fortron, or enermax psu.

Ok, I'm gonna go with the Antec TrupowerII 550W, I was just concerned, because I've been reading and it says that the 20+4 pin connectors don't work and it has to be a true 24-pin.

If this is a gaming rig, I'd recommend a 7800GT rather than 6800GS..
