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?

the video card really isnt enough to take advantage of that processor. I'd suggest spending just a tad bit more money and getting a 1gig 4850 instead of a 4670. it has twice the memory bandwidth and higher clockspeeds for like 20$ extra if you can find a deal. just try newegg.com

You would also need a DVD drive to be able to load the OS.

No, that system wouldn't be a good gaming computer. The video card is weak. It might run games on low, but don't expect much :( .

Also that power supply is somewhat low if you ever planned on getting a decent video card.

You would only be able to use a video card with one 6-pin connector otherwise the psu would get overloaded.(<sorry, just me being dumb, my usual self where my brain falls asleep :sleep:  ).
