More about build compatible
  1. yep it looks good, but I would get a WD hard drive over a Seagate one, as the .10's are slow, and the .11s have firmware problems.
  2. They still are working on the firmware problems or did they just give up?
  3. ^ I think they replaced them with the .12s and just left the retail .11s with the original FW.

    although I'd still take a WD or Samsung drive over a Seagate anyday.
  4. Yea well everyone will have there own opinions on which one has worked the best with whom ever.
  5. Will i be able run new games?
  6. yes, but when the DX11 games come out you won't be able to play them in DX11, just in DX10.
  7. This HD is a current model that's considerably faster than the 2 generation old HD in the OP. It's also only $5 more.

    Western Digital Caviar Blue WD3200AAKS 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - OEM $49.99

    I would also ditch the IDE DVD burner for a SATA model.

  8. I'd suggest a Caviar Black, even if the increased performance is not taken advantage of, the additional cost is only about $5. I also always lean toward Corsair for PSU, though there's nothing wrong with OCZ.

    You're going nVidia with AMD, which again there's nothing wrong with that, it's just not the norm - most people pair AMD with ATI or Intel with nVidia. If your budget allows it, you'll have more upgrade-ability with an Intel i7 and a GTX 260 core 216 video card is a pretty nice upgrade. These things all add a fair bit of cost, but with performance increases that make it worthwhile if not unaffordable.

    If not, I'd consider two ATI cards in Crossfire over the GTS 250 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102829 is a good example since two will be the same cost as your one nvidia card, however you may need to select a different mobo, it doesn't appear this one is Crossfire compatible
  9. i think im gonna stick with amd and nvidia.
