To preface, I mainly play games on this computer and run basic office operations. Games are currently WoW and BF 2. The main reason behind this upgrade is to get a system that will be good for a couple of years into the future and to donate my current box to my little brother so he's not stuck trying to play games on his notebook (32mb video card ). I've already got:
Antec Sonata II case w/the stock 450w PSU
Maxtor 250GB PATA/133 16MB buffer HDD, and all of my peripherals. The plan is:
AMD 3700+ San Diego Core
ASUS A8N5X Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD Motherboard
gigaram 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Unbuffered DDR 400 (PC 3200) DUAL CHANNEL System Memory
7800 GT of some variety
On the surface of it, are there any compatibility issues I'm not seeing, or are there any parts one would recommend against? I'm buying part by part to ease the financial burden, and planning on buying the CPU and Video Card last to see what prices do. I'm not big on overclocking, but want to leave the option open for the future. Any suggestions?
