Question my new computer build

so i used a crappy HP pavilian for years and years and really wanted to get into gamming but never could. so i decided to build a computer.

this is what i came up with:

proc -AMD 64 3000+ Venice

mobo -BioStar nForce 4 SLi Ultra ATX

memory -GEIL 512 x2 dual channel

graphics -xfx 6600 256MB

case -CoolerMaster Centurion5

PSU -Antec smartpower 2.0 400 watts

Harddrive -Western Digital 160GB 8mb ATA

and just a plain CD-ROM untill i upgrade

what do you think?

Are those Geil the Geil ONE series? Those are pretty good with lower latency. The video card is a limiting factor. Try to get a better one like a 6800 series card or if you must, get a 6600GT (budget card).

*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?

ew 400 way? no way. and how much money you got? that would help. and the mobo i dont like that much.

and i dont like IDE, get SATA. but then again IDE is good for budget.

this is nice


and this is a nice vid card

if you want like a surrond sound system maybe try this

if not just screw it and go with the mobo mother board

as for the motherboard? i dont feel like looking for a motherboard right now
o ya this is a nicer sound card but idk, i am not good with sound cards
