Default New Rig on the Way. What ya Think?

Intel Pentium 4 530 3.0Ghz / 1MB Cache / 800 FSB / Socket 775 / HyperThreading / Processor.

MSI 915P COMBO-FR Intel Socket 775 ATX Motherboard

The above 2 I hope will work out. Now as far as PCI-E I am not sure what to get, my budget right now is limited but right now I just want the above 3 I've got ram and HD's.

I would like some PCI-E eathier 128 or 256 but for about $130 or less.

The board and cpu put me at $294.98 so I mean I dunno I get paid every week from my job put I dont want to spend 400 bucks for a card yet... I want to get something for now then go big later.... But I want to game with the earlier one...

Suggestions? Changes? Comments? Concerns? Anything would be appreciated.

Also for the mobo and cpu, what wattage psu should I go with?



•AMD 8120 @ 3.8Ghz
•CoolerMaster Hyper212 EVO
•MSI 970A G46
•8GB Dual-Channel 1600Mhz DDR3 Corsair Vengeance
•eVGA 660 GTX Ti
•128gb Samsung 830 SSD (OS, Games)
•2TB Seagate 7200rpm 64mb Barracuda SATA6GB's
•640gb WD (Cavier Blue)

Do you really want Intel? AMD is a lot better. Get the DFI Lanparty nForce 4 Ultra and an AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Venice. as for a cheap PCIE vid card...the geforce 6600 GT is about $170.

For a PSU, go with the Thermaltake SIlent Purepower 420 watter

-AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Winchestor
-MSI K8N Neo4-F
-Sapphire Radeon X850 XT
-2x 1024 Corsair XMS Pro
