I'm not clicking on eight links just to see what the components are, how about a description to go with the links mate.

lol

hey man newegg is a great site and most every one of those items I bet you has at least 20 reviews, mostly written by newegg customers..

so read them, they'll point you in the right direction, from there its just your spending range.

Re: Should I buy these parts?
 
Lol that sounds like an outstanding system, that would probably run most video games on the market, as long as they don't have crazy standards.

But yeah, I would definitely go for that.

Well I guess I asked for that, I had a good laugh :D

So we have:

GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L
E2180 (and for some reason a heap of video card specs) :p
GeForce 8500GT
Western Digital Caviar 250GB SATA 3.0Gb/s
LITE-ON DVD Burner 20x IDE
COOLER MASTER 650W
COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP

No ram (I clicked the link, one out of eight aint so bad ;) )

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)

Yep, it will all work together fine.


I would suggest looking at a SATA burner (no bulky ide cable) and is there any particular reason you went for such a low powered cpu?? Is a quad over your budget? or even a higher clocking dual core? If it were me I'd be looking further up the tree for a gpu as well, but as you have given no budget I'll hold off on anymore recommendations.

Well, looks like he's going for a lower budget build by the cheaper video card and budget mobo.

I think it look like a nice build, good luck!

Re: Should I buy these parts?
 
u should rather give 20 extra dollars to get a 8600 GT instead of the 8500
