Default A few questions on my own build.

Ok so this is my builld. I am going to order it right after Christmas. But I need some advice on it, like overall would you call this a good solid build? Iv heard the motherboard is a bit complex and I almost know nothing about them. Im pretty sure all the parts will work with eachother too. But if you have any suggestions please feel free to tell me.

-Thanks

PC looks good to me. DFI motherboards are good and you should have no problems with the install. I prefer a dual core system though.

If that graphics card says "PCI-E" anywhere on it, you need to make sure that your motherboard says "PCI-E" somewhere on it, because if it says "AGP" you need an AGP graphics card. Other than that, you shouldn't need a new computer for a few years.

The links between the video card and the DVD RW doesn't work.
