Hi.. I am looking to build a new gaming computer as my first build. I play call of duty 1 and am looking to get a high fps which I know from friends' computers seems to rely mostly on the video card and ram.
I am looking to save as much money as possible. Here is what I have:
MSI K9N Neo-F Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 550 MCP ATX AMD Motherboard - $77
AMD Athlon 64 3800+ Orleans 2000MHz HT 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor - $108
G.SKILL 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM Unbuffered DDR2 667 (PC2 5400) System Memory - $75 (MSI board says standard is DDR2 800, but those are more expensive)
Antec SmartPower 2.0 SP-500 ATX12V 500W Power Supply 115/230 V TUV, UL, CUL, CE, CB, FCC - $70
eVGA 256-P2-N554-AX Geforce 7600GT KO 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3200820AS 200GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
SONY Black 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM IDE DVD-ROM Drive Model DDU1615/B2s - $20
I need a case that has adequate fans, quiet, not too flashy. Is the power supply adequate?
Does anyone see anywhere that I can save money? I really do not want to increase the cost.
Is everything compatible?
