Is this a good computer?


I'm thinking of building a new computer for myself. It will be used for the usual, gaming, movies, music, storage etc. These are the components I plan to put into it. What do you guys think? Any suggestions?
Motherboard -

GPU - GeForce 8800GT 512MB

PSU - Corsair 650W


Hard Drive - 500GB Seagate 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive

Case -

DVD Drive


Also. What do you guys think is better geForce 8800GT or 9800GT? Any other help would be appreciated.

Thank you

P.S. Is it work getting a Blu-Ray Drive?

  1. Your links are broken.

    8800gt is old technology and the 9800gt is starting to get dated, i wouldnt recommend either. What types of games are you playing?

    Do not get 3gb of ram as it will not run in dual channel and you will see a performance hit. 4gb kits are cheap and are the appropriate choice.

    Blu ray is only worth it if you have a large enough monitor or tv to take advantage of the high resolution.
  2. Blu-ray is still quite pricy, so unless you have the money and a passion for movies I'd wait and stick with standard DVD for the time being.

    I would choose the 9800GT over the 8800GT if you prefer nVidia and can't afford to spend any extra, however for roughly the same price you could get a HD4850 which is not so dated.
  3. Please rewrite the CPU and mobo$ H.D.D Links because all are 404 Not Found
    like what others said 8800 are old now
    u can get HD 4830 at the samr price
    and cheaper then 9800GT .
