OK, so I've had my current computer for about 3 years, and things are starting to get a little old and crusty around here (not to mention that it's a Gateway and I'm a gamer
Anyway, after much consideration, I have decided that I want to build my own computer; however, I lack the experience that many of the seasoned veterans of this forum have. Here is a list of parts that I am considering using for my computer:
Case: ANTEC ALUMINUM SERIES SUPER LAN BOY MINI TOWER CASE
Mobo: ASUS "K8V SE Deluxe" K8T800 Chipset Motherboard for AMD Socket 754 CPU
Gpu: ATI RADEON 9800 PRO Video Card, 256MB DDR, 256-bit, DVI/TV-Out, 8X AGP
PSU: Aspire Turbo Case 520W 12V Blue Triple Fan Aluminum Power Supply
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3200+
RAM: Corsair Value Select Dual Kits 184 Pin 1G(512MBx2) DDR PC-2700
HD: Maxtor 80GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive
Sound Card: Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy2 ZS GAMER Limited Edition PCI Sound Card
Speakers: ALTEC LANSING 251 5.1 Amplified Speaker System
(Note: All from newegg.com, and total price comes to $1,135.48)
I am planning on using my current monitor, keyboard and mouse. Now, am I missing any parts? Are all these parts compatible? If not, any recommendations? Where could I find a book or tutorial on assembling a computer?
Any and all comments/answers are appreciated.
