I'm on a budget of $1,000 and I'm trying to build a new computer around the E6300. This computer will be primarily used for gaming and simple computer related tasks (surfing the web, listening to music, etc). I wont be doing any photo/video editing at all nor overclocking.
I have a keyboard, mouse, speakers and monitor.
Case: Antec Solution SLK3000-B Black Steel ATX Mid Tower (link)
PSU: Antec SmartPower 2.0 SP-500 ATX12V 500W (link)
MOBO: Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3 (link)
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 (link)
Memory: OCZ Gold Series 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 667 (PC2 5400) (link)
Video Card: SAPPHIRE Radeon X1800XT 256MB (link)
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar SE 160GB (link)
Optical Drive: NEC Black (link)
Things I'm wondering about..
1. MoBo/RAM compatability
2. Is this set up good for gaming?
