Review my final hardware

Recommended Posts

This board has given me enough confidence to take on my first build and made me decide for a Dfi board. I believe I am ready and would appreciate it if you guys could please review my hardware for any compatibility issues, and give me any suggestions/comments you may have. I already have the other hardware needed to complete a PC, and I do plan on overclocking little, but later on.

Hey Zable82,

 

From what i've been reading... I don't think the DFI board likes any kind of value ram, your probably better off with some TCCD/TCC5.

 

But that's just my two cents... everthing looks fine.. i hope you PSU is native 24pin though (to lazy to click/check the likn :P)

 

Good Luck!

However this $83 Enermax is a much better buy for an SLI future.

You probably will not get far with the "value" ram and if you do have problems getting the OC to run stable everyone will point at your ram being the problem, because it will be. Do yourself a favor and search the posts for some better ram. OCZ has at least 2 ppl on this forum that helps with problems, that always helps :)

OCZ Gold VX (likes voltage)

Powersupply looks good, FYI it only has one FDD (floppy) connector and the DFI-NF4 Mobo requires one. If you plan on using a floppy drive you will need an additional FDD connector.

FDD Adapter (havent used that seller before, but free shipping!)

Thanks to all for their comments, specially for directing me to the memory, I'll be sure and try to choose some better ram, probably some OCZ. Any more comments/suggestion guys?

Hello,

 

A good case with lots of space and room for some case fans.

 

To save you from buying again later, why not buy a new chipset cooler.

The DFI one will start to make a funny noise after a while.

What type of memory is another question to ask yourself, PC3200 or PC4000.

with PC4000 is will run at 250Mhz without overclocking it.
