First (potential) Build


Recommended Posts

So I've been looking around on tiger direct a lot, and I've gotten some feedback here, and some other places and I came up with a computer that I might end up building. But before I do, which probably won't be soon seeing as I'm a college student and thus am by nature, broke. Anywho I might try and mooch some money from my grandparents and parents and a job and get this together. Here it is.


Processor - Intel Core 2 Duo 8400

GPU - EVGA GeForce 260

Motherboard - Asus P5N-D

Memory - 4 GB OCZ SLI Dual Channel DDR2

Hard Drive - two Western Digital Caviar SE16 250 GB one for Linux Ubuntu and one for Windows Vista 64 bit business edition (Which I can get for free from my school)

Case and Power Supply - Ultra eTorque ULT33180 with Power Up 800 Watt Power supply


I was going to get one 640 GB hard drive but two 250 GB's were less expensive and I don't need that much space anyway.


One thing I am worried about is the motherboard, I'm hoping it's compatible with everything, and I'm pretty sure it is, but it would be nice if someone could double check for me.


Thanks in advance for any help!
