Hi everyone,

I'm putting together a low budget computer. It's been a long time since I've put together a system (back when Pentium II was new), so I was wondering if more experienced people could take a look at my part list and let me know if this system will run. While selecting pieces, some concerns I ran into were the 8 pin EPS 12V connector on the PSU, but I found a motherboard with an 8 pin ATX connector, so this should work. It's things like that which I am not really familiar with.

It should be noted I'm not really looking to try and save any extra money, I'm concerned with compatibility, and quality. I attempted to choose brands which I've used in the past or am familiar with, for the most part, but welcome any suggestions. So..will these parts work together?

Thank you for your time and help.

Purpose of the system: Web browsing, short video clips, email, small-time poker games (such as can be found on facebook apps).

If that's the case you definitely do not need 8GB of ram. I'll post back shortly with an i3 build at the same price.
