Is this build ok? Tags: Build Systems Last response: December 21, 2010 10:28 PM in Systems Share sparrow560 December 21, 2010 9:31:59 PM It has been a while since I last dealt with PC hardware and there's alot of new products and I kinda got lost. So I just wanted to know if this build is any good for a good heavy gaming computer: CPU : Intel core 2 Quad Q8400 GPU: nVIDIA Geforce gtx 460 768MB Motherboard: Asus p5p43td pro (?) RAM: DDR3 4096 1600MHz CL 7-8-7-24 Eco from G.skill Hard drive: Samsung 2.5'' 500GB PSU : CoolerMaster sileo 500W My main problem was choosing the PSU and the Motherboard. Please tell me if this build is any good, or compatible. Cheers More about : build redgarl December 21, 2010 9:45:53 PM NO... if someone offering you this, say no.
