This will be my first time building a PC so any help would be greatly appreciated.
I plan on using this PC for gaming and browsing the internet.
I don't have any plans to overclock it.
here's what I'm considering:
COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black Aluminum Bezel, SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail
Rosewill RP550-2 ATX 2.01 550W Power Supply - Retail
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz LGA 775 Processor Model BX80557E6600 - Retail
Kingston ValueRAM 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) Dual Channel Kit System Memory Model KVR533D2N4K2/2G - Retail
SAMSUNG 18X DVD±R DVD Burner With 12X DVD-RAM Write, LightScribe Technology Black IDE Model SH-S182M/BEBN - OEM
Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD2500KS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM
ATI 100-435843 Radeon X1950XTX 512MB GDDR4 PCI Express x16 CrossFire Video Card - Retail
Will that video card be okay even if I decide not to use crossfire?
And will that power supply work with everything, will it be able to power the graphics card?
Will the case and motherboard form factor be compatable with everything?
Anything major that I'm forgetting?
Looks absolutely dandy to me - some good solid component choices - nice. The only thing I don't know about in the PSU - never heard of Rosewill before.
Personally I'd go for a Seasonic or a Tagan, but that's just me - most probably be fine.
One other thing is that your putting a crossfire-enabled graphics card into a motherboard that won't allow you to do crossfire if you decide to go that route in the future - it'll still work on it's own though.
pardon me, but would you happen to have any grey poopon?
far be it for me to tell you that your nickname might be a stain on your otherwise spotless santa hat.
ROFL come on dawg if you have to ask then i dont know what to tell you, but seriously are you a lonely jew? O.o LOL relax im just kidding around, a little elbow in the ribs never hurt anyone, gotta have some fun -=P
P.S. One of the Antec TruePower Trio's less commonly known features is it is Poo resistant bwhahahaha
hey everything in your PC is okay except the motherboard don't get intel original boards you wont be able to fit an SLI/Cross fire card and besides that they barely offer anything for your price try the ASROCK series or gigabyte or MSI or ASUS anything excepy intel original boards .
