I was wondering if someone who knows quite a bit about compatibility issues with building a new computer could tell me if they think I might have some hardware issues with a computer I am going to build.

Thanks, Scott

Basically looks ok to me. But get a better PSU than the one that came with the case. I recommend a ThermalTake PurePower Butterfly 480W. They don't cost a lot, ($160 NZD), and are quite good from my experience. That way when you upgrade or overclock you have headroom.

Your proc selection says, "3x00+, For notebooks"...I'd be careful there, this might be a lower voltage notebook/mobile cpu, and if the mainboard does not support that core voltage, this could be bad news....

If you already bought all these componets then, i'd have to agree with mdd1963's suggestion.

If not then, heres a few recommendation...
Hopefully you'll have better luck with Maxtor's HDs then others. I try to stick with Seagate & WD.
If its a gaming rig, i'd say drop another gig into it and make it a nice 2gig system.

Other then that, rock on with the build 8)

I would get rid of the DTR processor and go for something else. DTR stands for Desktop Replacement. I'm sure you will not need to use the Power saving notebook features and I'm not sure they even work in atx boards. Why limit yourself with the 9600XT. I am running a 128MB version of this card an cant wait to get rid of it. The four pipelines and slow RAM will be a huge bottle neck for the system.

ANy gaming going to be done?

Agree, a 9600XT is weak for todays games...

Look at a 6600GT minimum, and better yet, a 6800GS or X800 GTO..

If not planning on playing any modern 3d games, disregard this advice...
