So a buddy of mine is trying to put together a cheap system using some salvaged parts from an old machine. I was just trying to get some feedback on the components. The only parts that will have to be purchased is a case/PSU/HDD

Parts that he already has:

MOB
Intel desktop board: DG31PR, LGA 775, Intel G31, 2DDR2 800 – Micro ATX

CPU
E5200 2.5GHz, 2M L2 cache, 800MHz FSB –LGA 775

GPU
BFG Tech nVidia GeForce 9500 GT, 1GB DDR2

RAM
PNY optima 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240pin DDR2 800

The monitor that he has is nothing special and the resolution that he wants to play at is a standard 1024x768.

Parts needed:

Case - ?

PSU - ?

HDD
West Digi – Caviar Blue 500GB, 16MB cache, 7200RPM – WD5000AAKS

This rig would be set up pretty much just for playing WOW and other basic computer task. We just want to know if all the parts play well together. As for the case/psu/HDD he is just looking for something cheap and functional.

Case is a personal choice, but I've always found the Antec 300 and Antec 200 cheap, but a quality case with good airflow.

The PSU jsc linked is a good suggestion too.
