wish to build a computer for my educational use, like word typing, creating web pages, storing wedding pictures (really loads of them), want to store them on dvd, i lalso use programming languages like, visual basic, python etc to make programmes.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 3.0GHz
Gigabyte GA M59SLI-S4 AM2
1024 MB RAM
LiteOn DH-18A1P-18C 18X DVDRW
Microsoft Windows XP

Can you tell me if the above specification is any good?

And also processor and motherboard compatible with each other?

any improvements needed?

firt you will need a power supply a computer isn't much good if you can't turn it on. second a case will be needed to hold it all. another gig of ram would be good for future use and won't be much more money. You will need a graphics card because that board doesn't have onboard video. so i can help pick out those if you give me a price range

What RAM will you use? make sure its 800MHz cause the AMD chips can really benefit from that.

I would recommend this set

As for PSU first you need a graphic card and then decide on one.

Yeah, more RAM. Upgrading the hard drive to a 320gig shouldn't cost much more either.

If you're not gaming or doing huge amounst of rendering, you should get a cheaper chip. If you are rendering, you would probably be better off with a C2D, as they are having massive price reductions soon.

You will be much better off with a graphics card than integrated graphics.

If you are going to make some serious development with Visual Studio, I do recommend get another GB of ram, with 1 GB it runs fine but soon you will need more. Currently I'm using it with 512 and I can't stand it anymore!
