Default Building a new computer.

Ok, so I've taken the step to order new computer components in aids of building something bigger and better than my P3-800.

I've ordered the following items:

AMD Athlon XP 2600+ 33FSB
ASUS A7N8X Deluxe MBoard
DDR400 Memory 512MB PC3200
Chieftec Matrix Green Aluminum ATX Case
Thermaltake 480W Silent Purepower P.S.
Thermaltake Volcano 9

I guess my question is, what do you think? and are all of these compadible. I'm not super-computer-genious, but I think I did enough research to choose the above items wisely.

Please advice.

Any suggestions?

Thanks guys.

- J

cpu is one of amds best bang for the buck

very nice mobo supports cpu and other components
good memory pick but make sure you choose ur brand carefully i go for kingston/crucial/ and corsair
And anything from thermaltake is super quality. So no worries about that.

You have me figured out! I do a lot of web surfin, as I've been away from the gaming aspect for quite some time (with University). However, since I've graduated, I've had more time to get more involved and want to get back into the gaming (consoles suck)... and with work being really slow lately Wahoo... thanks for the reply. In January, I'm gonna order the Radeon 9800 Pro.

As for prices, I've shopped around a lot. The best I could find was at TigerDirect.com, and since they ship to Canada (their .ca prices are better than anywhere here...)... perfect.
