Exclamation Compatible Components, your opion

Hi,
i'd rather be safe than sorry, so I want a second opinion (more if possible) if these components are compatible:

CPU - AMD (Venice) Athlon 64Bit 3200+ Socket 939pin 512k L2cache 90nm Retail Boxed Processor
http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/881...FQI7UgodfG6qYw 52
MEMORY - Kingston 512MB DDR PC3200 400MHz CL3 Memory Module (Lifetime warrenty)
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=49294 32
MOBO - Asus A8V-VM Socket 939 VIAKM890 M-ATX Green VGA Sound Lan USB 2.0 FSB 1000 SATA 133
http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/112239 32
CASE - Casecom KG-9666 Grey/Silver ATX Midi Tower Case - With 350W PSU
http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/86509 15
GFX CARD - Asus Nvidia 7300GS 256MB PCI-E
http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/111197 42
HARD DRIVE
Got 40gb IDE 0
SOUND CARD
Onboard mobo - Please check 0
MONITOR
Got one already 0
OPTICAL DRIVES
Should be getting CD-DVD drive. Got external floppy drive 0
CABLES -Ill need a cable to the hard drive, and for connecting to CD-DVD drive
Are cables supplied with the PSU (supplied with case). Is the PSU powerful enough?
http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/store/2/cat/Cables-and-Tools ?

TOTAL: 169(?)

Is this computer good? Will this pc work for games like HL2, CS:S. I'm a bit concerned of the RAM's speed. I'll probaly put another stick of RAM in to make it upto a 1gb. But is this pc overall quite good? Wot improvments would you suggest?

- it's not for me (ive got better ). It's for my brother, for his games, browsing and other stuff.

Cheerz!

Yes it should work I believe,

You live in Germany though - if he lives in the UK, postage would be expensive. Nice offer though.

Check whether that motherboard has a PCI-E slot or an AGP one; if its PCI-E, its all compatible.

Yep, PCI-E. So this will work then? Do you know what cables ill need? Is it just for the hard drive and cd drive? Does the PSU (in the case) come supplied for powering the devices?

Thankyou

Yeah, everything's compatible I believe. The only thing that I would suggest is getting a better power supply. 350W may do for your setup though, so you might want to get opinions from others first before doing so. I'm not very good as far as PSUs go, but I know 350W is very minimal.

well I would suggest getting faster ram. That website just sucks (atleast I think so) so I can't find the max ram speed, but I highly doubt it's anything less than ddr400.

If u buy the mobo in a retail package (I'm pretty sure the one in ur link is retail) it will come with the most common cables. (for the hdd etc) U shouldn't need to buy any extra cables, but if u do they won't cost much and it's easy to get them from a local pc store.

is that graphics card gona be fine for hl2 and bf2?
What cables do i need for it. Standard IDE? Would you say it's worth 170? Is the onboard sound going to be okay for listening to music, or should i purchase a sound card... is it surround. According to mobo it is: http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...uct_uid=112239. OR is it just the beep sound box? Will the heat sink come with the CPU. I have one 80mm fan, is that enough.
Thx
P.S
I pretty sure this memory will fit:
MEMORY - Ebuyer 512mb DDR PC3200 400MHz 184pin Extra Value Ram
http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/49447

or woudl this be better

right now the highest ram speed you can get is 800 MHz, but it is ddr2, means you would have to get a different mobo and pay more than you want to by the looks of your selections.
