Default Re: First Comp Build EVER, some reviews please?

Didnt check the compatibility, but very nice build, Ive got a AMD Athlon 64 3800+ x2 and even though I love AMD, Intels Core 2 Duos are def the right choice. 2 gb of ram is the way to go, ill be upgrading to that very soon, and the Video Card is Very nice, same on I have, runs everything I want it too. Only piece of advice I could possible give you is buy a SLI board if you ever feelin like adding the extra power since that card aint so expensive.

EDIT: Oh yea, that Case is nice, but check Xoxide.com for cases. They have some really cool ones, pretty cheap too.

the RAM isn't compatible with your motherboard. you need DDR2 800 not 667.

Yeah I'm pretty sure for that board the BIOS has the 667 option. It does in my ASUS M2N32-SLI board. Looks pretty good. Graphics and processor could be better, but I guess you're not looking to break the bank are you?

Yeah, but as far as mouse and keyboard you get what you pay for...
I use a Saitek Eclipse and a Razer Diamondback 1600dpi laser mouse. Kinda pricey for wired stuff but I really have no complaints other than the fact I can't press space, left arrow, and down arrow all at the same time. If you manage the cables well wired stuff is not much wose than wireless. Actually I prefer it because there are no batteries/charging involved. They look cool too.
