Hello,

 

I am building my first computer. I have ordered the following from from Newegg.com:

 

AMD3400+ 2.4Ghz

1GB PDP (Patriot) DDR-3200 RAM with XBL Technology (Latency 2-2-2-5)

Gigabyte GA-K8NS PRO Motherboard

Thermaltake 420W Power Supply

CHAINTECH nVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 128 MB DDR 64 Bit Video Card

Chenming Case

CD/RW-DVD

Dual Layer DVD Burner

 

Will this be a good setup?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Richard

what's up man... everything in that setup looks cool... the Tt 420W psu wouldn't be the best psu... an Enermax 470 or 480 (or whatever) would be better and is about the same price iirc...

 

fx5200 suck for gaming, but if you're not into games then it'd be ok just for like windows and 2D stuff like photoshop and dvd's n stuff...

 

i'd forget about the separate DVD/CDR combo drive and spend that money saved on a better graphics card... also, you'd probably save some more money by going with a 3200+ winchester core cpu... (they all have a similar oc wall apparently)

 

welcome to occ dude :)
