ddr2 ram 2 gigs
dvd burner - unsure brand is installed on my comp atm
now here is where i am worried,
1. i am unsure if i am really getting the right psu for my needs, i know it will run my mobo, hd, and my dvd burner
2. is the fan controller a wise investment at this point?
3. do i have all the power connections i need for all those fans
4. if not how do i solve the above issues cheaply as i am putting all this together on a 400-450 dollar budget, not counting ram, dvd, and hd.
yeah i could go that route, however with my price range i end up looking at the same ram supported either way on on a processor thats exactly the same as the am2+ board and this saves me the issue of having to buy new ram, and as my main uses are gaming and net surfing with some other rare occasional rendering, i dont really need the expenses of dd3 ram or the power.
like i said for this build its mainly my psu compatility and the fan's all fitting in
with no video card, The Seasonic 350W OEM 80+ Bronze PSU is fine ($39.99)
If you want a video card, go for the Seasonic S12II 520W 80+ Bronze model ($59.99). with either you must supply your own power cord, which is either $3.00 or free if you have old ones just lying around
