Is This A Good Setup?

Recommended Posts

This is the first time I will be building a computer so I want to make sure I am doing this right.

 

The setup I picked out:

Mobo: SOLTEK "SL-K890PRO-939"

CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3200+

RAM: OCZ enhanced latency series DDR pc-3200 (2X512)

Video: Chaintech GeForce 6600GT PCIe

Case: INWIN "X710" w/ 430w PSU

HDD: Maxtor Ultra Series Kit 120GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive

I have old DVD drives I can use

 

Is this setup good? Would you recommend i change anything? Are all the parts compatible?

 

I will be playing mostly HL2 and CS:S, also note I have little intent on overclocking in the near future

 

I know this might be alot of work but this is my final step before purchasing the parts.

 

Thank you

everythings lookin good cept the mobo. I heaven't heard of that company and don't know how good they would be for overclocking. I do know that the dfi sli board is a great overclocker. Some are calling it the king of overclocking boards. other then that sweet rig

You never heard of Soltek? You hould read tomshardware and under motherboards read the s939 article. Out of all the mobo's he recommends the Abit AV8 and Soltek for non pci-e.... Solket makes pretty pruple stuff!

Go for NF4 boards from now on if at all possible, when going AMD. That's just my opinion though. Power is crucial for just about everything, so 480w is a good bottom line, in addition to stable rails. Even if you aren't going to overclock much, adequate power is essential, and it'll allow for flexibility when upgrading. I've read one or two reviews of Soltek boards, but I've never had any experience with one, so I can't really give you an opinion on the board (both reviews were overall positive though, so that counts for something). Good luck with your first build.
