New build, is my system stable?

I bought and put together my first computer:
OCZ fatal1ty 550W
Athlon x3 450 (3.2 ghz)
radeon 6850 (asus version)
g skill DDR3 1333 4gb ram
ASRock 770 mobo
Seagate 7200.12 500gb

Does this look ok?


Is the core speed supposed to drop to 798.2 from 3198? I'm running windows update while I was looking at this.

  1. See the link in my sig for utilities that will help you test your system for temps and stability.

    Run CPU-Z along with Prime95 in order to see the processor performing under load. Add to that something like HWMonitor to track temps.
