it is says the shopping cart is empty, probably because we cant see whats on your account.

Maybe copy and paste your shopping cart into paint or something, save it and upload it.

hmm what do you plan to use it for?

I've heard bad things about some of Thermaltakes power supplies, not sure about that one, although a 500w power supply might be a better idea to start with. Someone else will have to help you out picking one.

Also i haven't heard of A-Data, other's probably have i just haven't seen it around in the UK. It;s better to go with a more name brand though.

GRRR newegg isn't working for me atm, it hasn't been working well all day, sorry i can't sent links.

well like i said i just haven't seen it before and my internets going weird so i can't check, someone else more qualified will comment soon i'm sure.:happy:

Hmmm your mobo specs seem to state it can't handle any better then DDr2 667 memory, so you need a better board to support the ram you want and i suggest doing so.

Re: My new build... Input?
 
Oops I changed the mobo but forgot to update it.

its a GIGABYTE GA-P31-S3G LGA 775 Intel P31 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail (Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P31-S3G LGA 775 Intel P31 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards)

It says it supports 1066 memory, does that mean it can use anything under that? (800) Or it can only use 1066?

Re: My new build... Input?
 
yeah by supports it means up to, so yes you can use below it, that's fine. Oh hey you still haven't said exactly what you want to use the puter for?

Re: My new build... Input?
 
Oh yeah,

Some gaming (Black hawk down, BF2, COD4)

And maybe some photoshop (not much)
