video card-this is where i really want personal opinions..this computer won't be dong any gaming so i won't need a hardcore card but i am also for sure not getting onboard video
sound card-i was planning on just getting onboard sound..this won't be a major issue with me. I don't listen to much music or games
Mobo-this is also where i have no idea of what should be the best thing to get.
[EDIT: what fans should i be looking for and a heatsink..and thermal paste haha just as an after thought and do screws come with the computer parts or do you need to purchase those.]
The CPU must Hit Pentium 4 6xx series or higher. 3GHZ is preferable
The RAM is OK, but consider buying 1.5-2GB RAM if budget says so
320 volts PSU does not exist. 320W PSU exists, but it's too weak for the machine. consider a 500W
The Video card is not intended for gaming? Buy an ATI X500 or X700
Mobo- If you can get an Intel motherboard for best performance, go with it. If not, the ASUS P5P800 series will do
The heatsink that comes with the CPU will do. For fans, just buy 4x 80mm fans, for best cooling.
