  skaria 11:30 25 Jul 2005

Dear friends...
I am building a PC for the first time, and would like to ask you for your opinion on the following products and their compatibility?

I was thinking of purchasing:

Processor - Intel Pentium 4 830 Dual Core "LGA775 Smithfield" 3.0GHz - 800FSB

Motherboard - Abit AW8-MAX Intel 955X (LGA775) PCI-Express Motherboard

Graphics Card - XFX GeForce PCX6600 GT 256MB DDR3 TV-Out/Dual DVI (PCI-Express)

Memory - GeIL 1GB (2x512MB) PC4400 Ultra-X CAS2.5

Hard Drive - Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 10 NCQ 200GB 6L200MO SATA 8MB Cache

Heatsink - NOT SURE


Case Fans - 2*Coolermaster Neon LED 80mm Fan

PSU - Antec TruePower 2.0 550W PSU

Case - Chenbro Gaming Bomb

I have been informed to purchase dual core as it would be a wise investment due to the current advances in technology.

I would really appreciate it if you could inform me whether this is all compatible and suggest a heatsink and CPU fan.

I would also really like it if you could pass me your opinion on whether this is a good buy in your opinion, or if I should change some parts.

I am open to any suggestions.

Thanks in advance!!!
