you have all the parts but I see that your aftermarket heatsink is for a socket A and your processor is a socket 939 so it won't work.

Also, you don't have to buy a power supply, since the case you selected already comes with one.

Oh crap, Forgot about it. No, DDR2 does not work on DDR based motherboards.

i would either buy skt. 939 or AM2, AM2 is newer and better (more upgradable and things like that for the future), but idk anything about skt A

if u wanted AM2, you would need to get the AM2 3800 X2 (pretty much the same price) and an AM2 motherboard (which might be a little more money)..then you would also need to pick different memory that's compatable with the motherboard you chose (it would be ddr2..probly ddr2 800). im pretty sure everything else should be compatable

Yeah they all look pretty compatable.. though to be honest there are a few things on there I would personally modify, such as ram, and even moreso the power supply. I don't trust stock case power supplies..

Do you have some sort of CD Rom for this thing?

the difference is just the socket type for the CPU

u wont see that much difference, its just AMD's latest thing so its better for the future and more up to date. also you can get ddr2 memory instead of regular ddr. and ddr2 is faster so...thats good

Socket 939 is the older generation from AMD. The only reason really why AMD switched to a new socket for their newest processors was to avoid confusion between the new and old processors.

This is a good socket AM2 motherboard. It'll be ok for overclocking, and unless you plan on being a hardcore, serious, overclocker then this will be fine for moderate overclocking:

MOBO: http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...nufacture=ASUS

A power supply from Antec, Aspire, OCZ, rated at at least 450 watts will be suffice for you. I personally reccomend this one for you:

Power Supply Unit (PSU): http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...ufacture=ANTEC

It's enough power for all of your components, plus extra for overclocking. Some people may say to get a 500watt or 600watt,but if you do that you generally end up with a cheaper, lower quality power supply cause the manufacturer will use cheaper parts to keep the price down. So unless you plan on putting out anywhere from $130-$160 on a psu i wouldn't go with a psu with a higher wattage.

Right now the difference between socket 939 and socket am2 is minimal. HOWEVER, (and this is a big however), socket am2 supports ddr2, a much faster type of memory. DDR2 is the future of Random Access Memory (RAM), and by getting a socket am2 you future-proof and it will last longer before becoming outdated. Furthermore if you went with socker 939 andf ever wanted to upgrade your processor, in a year or two, motherboard, you would need a new mobo, new memory, and a new processor. You would not be able to update one individual component, because AMD won't be making new socket 939 processors.

Also is their a reason your ordering from NCIX.com ? I reccomend newegg.com, their very good. Unless your outside the United States, and NCIX will ship to you.

hmm, well power supplies that come with cases are notoriously cheap and shotty. 400 watts should also be enough for moderate overclocking and all of your components. Most people have ridicolous power supplies that they'll never use. Reading the reviews on the site for that case not a single person complained about the PSU. It maybe a safe bet. Not all psu's that come with cases are poor quality, but many people have had bad experinces with them. If your budget allows get a different psu, if not you should be okay.

The stock Heatsink for the X2's is awesome there is no need for an aftermarket and also you void ur 3 year warranty for ur processor by using an aftermarket fan
