Hand me down computer parts (help)
I've wanted my own computer for a long time, due to the fact I can never get on the other two in my household. (My brother bought his own and my dad never gets off his MMORPG games), leaving me with no way to do my word processing/play games of my own).
So... this month I decided to take action and ask for some Second hand parts from friends =D.
Basically, it all went smoothly and I got some decent stuff.
My brother as I said just finished upgrading his own computer, and my dad had an 80 GB Hard-drive left over from his last upgrade 1 or 2 months ago.
Anyway... I'll list some of the stuff I got off of 3 or 4 friends:
80 GB 7200 RPM drive (have no clue if thats good or not)
Nvidia 6800 GT (bought it myself, my friend told me it was good)
Abit motherboard (I don't know the specs, but it's a Pentium 4 motherboard)
Corsair TwinX 1GB DDR XMS3200C2PRO (also bought by me, recommended by my brother)
AMD 64 3500+ S939 (given to me by my brother after he bought an AMD 64 FX-53)
Now, I know I need cables, but my only problem is, I dont know if all the components work together, and if not... I need some recommendations because my computer skills are as existant as the Loch Ness monster.
