Please reveiw it's my first home built computer

I am looking for suggestions on this computer i am going to attemp to build.
I am looking for something that will help me to record or download torrents in order to build me a libary of DVDs that i can burn as well as PS2 games for my grandson.
I also play some computer games if this helps.
what I am looking at is listed below:
712-series black ATX 500w mid tower case with front temp display.
Western Digital 250 Gbt with 8MB Cache
HP dvd 740i light scribe DL.
ASUS P5ND2-SLI Socket T (LGA 775) Nvidia nForce 4 SLI Intel Edition ATX Intel Motherboard .
Intel Pentium 4 630 Prescott 800MHz FSB LGA 775 EM64T Processor Model BX80547PG3000F.
SAPPHIRE 100142L Radeon X1300 512MB GDDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card.
2-CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) Unbuffered System Memory Model VS1GB533D2
Link Depot Power Adapter Cable Model POW-ADT-2024 if my mobo power supply only has a 20 pin connector.


I have the case and hard drive as well as the dvd burner but I'M waiting on feedback before I buy the rest of the goods.

I need to know if these are compatable with eack other and if not any suggestions would be great. Thanks, Deerhunter721 :roll:

  1. If your looking to create some type of data base for yourself, you may consider more drives. Backing up torrents and DVDs can become a very large task. You may want to consider a terabyte system in with a raid 0+11+0 separet from your OS. If you go this route, bump your PSU and add some better cooling.
  2. thanks for the advise i was going to put in a second dvd burner from my old computer and down the line add a second 250G hd. do you think i will have trouble with the mobo and video card, I heard a couple of people gave bad reviews about the pair. :roll:

    SLI's are not the fave these days. Intel in my opinion has not done a great job with the DDR2, but I'm bias to AMD, so thats probably not worth much to you. But for your usage you should have a solid rig as long as you have enough storage.
  4. If your not crazy about the SLI then what would you suggest, keep in mind of my price range ($150) and doesn't the ddr2 sticks have faster responce time than the 184 sticks.
