I've put together a PC build and was hoping someone might be able to have a look over the specs.
I really need to know firstly if there are any incompatability issues with the build e.g I have chosen an IDE DVD ROM. Is this compatable with the motherboard I have chosen? Also I have a SATA II hard drive, is this compatable and is SATA II necessary?
Also wanted your advice on the build. Any glaring problems, suggestions of better components (without breaking the bank!)
The current build comes to £800, don't want to spend too much more.
Thanks very much for your help!!
