help with choosing components.

  Vitruvian Man 14:13 27 Mar 2005

hello. I am choosing some components from overclockers to build a pc.

Here is the list that I am using:

AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Winchester 90nm (Socket 939) - Retail (CP-096-AM)

GeIL 1GB (2x512MB) PC3200 Value Dual Channel Kit CAS2.5 (GE1GB3200BHDC) (MY-005-GL)

MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum nForce4 Ultra (Socket 939) PCI-Express Motherboard (MB-046-MS)

HIS Excalibur ATI Radeon X700 Pro ICEQII TURBO 256MB DDR3 TV-Out/DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail (RX700P-256ICEQ) (GX-031-HT)

Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 80GB 6Y080PO ATA-133 8MB Cache - OEM (HD-014-MD)

Coolermaster Centurion 5 - Black/Silver (No PSU) (CA-075-CM)

Plextor PX-130A 16x50x DVD-ROM - (Black) Bulk (CD-026-PL)

Samsung TSH-552B 16 x 16 Dual Layer DVD±RW ReWriter (Black) - OEM (CD-019-SA)

Logitech Ultra-X Keyboard - OEM (KB-041-LG)

Logitech MX510 Performance Optical Mouse - Retail (KB-024-LG)

Tagan TG380-U01 380W ATX2.0 Silent PSU (CA-001-TG)

This is all I have put together. Does anyone see any problems with this? such as compatibility or is anything missing etc. (Apart from monitor) Thanks in advance.

I can't comment on any quality or compatability issues but i think you will be surprised on what you can save on your components

Personaly I'd opt for a higher wattage PSU.
When I bought the PC i'm using now I had doubts about the 350w PSU but I was assured it could cope with anything I wanted it to do. They claimed it had a more efficient output that most.
After several problems and several months they replaced it with a 500w PSU.

I agree with bluesbrother a higher wattage psu is will also need more recent built psu for the connector for 939 motherboards

also the amd64 +3000 venice is due in April with SSE3 and better memory controller..willbe be same price as the winny it is alleged

hmm. well the mother board needs atx 2.0 to support it and that is what the psu has. it has to support the pci express too. anyway im most concerned with compatibility but i dont think there should be any problems.

Feel free to shoot me down, I'm on unfamiliar ground here. But the Tagan TG380 seems to be ATX12V 1.3. click here

  bluesbrother 20:55 27 Mar 2005

Vitruvian Man
Please keep us posted on your progress. The selfbuild is soemthing that I'm planning on doing later and your specs (with larger psu) seem the sort of specs I'm after. I haven't costed it all yet.
