Hello, I am trying to build a computer of my own for the first time and i have looked up online for all these parts and i was wondering if this will turn out good or am i missing like wire ECT? Also will all the wire hook up right? If i get all the parts, will i be able to build this without buying any thing else?

If there are parts that you think are not good or its generic brand, tell me because im not familiar with computer component brands.

I will try to run this on Win XP if possible.

My second question is, will this be a good gaming computer?

Don't get a Phenom X4 9650 and AM2+ motherboard - the original Phenom X4s weren't very good, and AM2+ only supports DDR2, which means that if you want to upgrade to 8GB, DDR2 RAM will cost more later on. Also, I don't suggest you get the GeForce 9500GT - they aren't very good gaming cards at all.

What is your budget?

around 500. I searched all over to find parts. It would be great if you can help me out.
I want a motherboard that support ddr2 because they are cheaper than ddr3 and i can get ddr2 for a cheap price.

Refer to Tom's hardware's SBM $750 build
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/value-gaming-pc,257...

If you cut out the aftermarket cpu cooler & stick with the stock one, that should save you about $20-25 bucks.
Instead of the dual HD4850, get a single 1 GB 5750, saving around 50 bucks.
Get the antec 300 + antec earthwatts 430
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...
This saves you a further $30-40.
So in all, you get the rig for around $600, a bit higher than your budget, but worth it, i believe

The number of people we see on here who have Rosewill PSUs give up is obscene!
