well, ive just finished desiding what parts i would like to buy for my new pc. i would like to make sure that they are all compatible with eachother. heres the list:
GIGABYTE 3D AURORA GZ-FSCA1-ATB Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Gigabyte GA-M59SLI-S5 Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard
CORSAIR XMS2 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM Unbuffered DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit System Memory
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ Windsor 2.4GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Dual Core Processor
eVGA 256-P2-N527-RX Geforce 7800GTX 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 VIVO PCI Express x16 Video Card
XG VORTEC PSVO-600 ATX 600W Power Supply
Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD3200KS 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
Dell UltraSharp 1707FP
ASUS Black 52X CD-R 32X CD-RW 52X CD-ROM 2M Cache E-IDE/ATAPI CD Burner
with these parts, plus Windows Vista, a keyboard, mouse and such, this build will cost around $1600. if there are any parts that you think i should change, please keep in mind that i dont plan on going over a total of $2000, thx
and i have some specific questions, just to make sure everything fits and stuff:
1. i want to make sure that my RAM and processor work well with my mobo... i read somewhere(i dont remember where) that AM2 slotted mobos dont work well or something? i didnt think this was true, but i just wanted to make sure... and i also read that some brands of RAM seem to be picky about which mobos they work well with.
2. does my power supply seem to be a decent brand? i was looking at some lists on the internet and XG doesnt seem to be on any of them. i just really would hate to fry my brand new parts with a bad brand PSU...
3. do i need MORE fans? the case comes with 3 and the graphics card has one built onto it... i read in some reviews that the case fans werent very powerful. but, with 4 total fans, shouldnt that be enough?
