Advice on a custom build computer.

Sorry if it's in the wrong section.

I am going to build a custom build PC and want to know if these parts are compatible with the motherboard.

These are the parts:

Motherboard: Asus P8H61-M LE/USB3 S1155/DDR3/SATA2/uATX Mainboard
Memory: 2x Corsair 4GB DDR3 1333MHZ Klikk (Total:8GB)
Graphics Card: VGA-PCI-Ex16x nVidia GTS450 Club-3D 1GB DDR3 VGA/DVI/HDMI
CPU:CPU-Intel-S1155 DualCore G630 2.7GHz (3M) BOX
PSU:650W EzCool 12cm Fan ATX Power Supply

Extra: 1x Adaptor Internal - Drive-IDE-PATA to

Board-IDE-SATA Manhattan 170598

1x Cable Internal - SATA300 70cm Red with latch

Manhattan 324397

The Cables and the apdater are used to convert my PATA HDD to a SATA HDD because the motherboard only supports SATA.

I would like to watch online HD video,Call of Duty 2 and 3,GTA IV.

OS: Windows 7 64-bit.

Thanks for any replies.

    The following parts list I need for information and particular links:

    However, since these drives are so old I would strongly encourage you to replace any old HDD's or DVD drives with SATA. Often I see these converters have either limitations or simply fail and or are unreliable. Drives > 3~5 years old good now or not should be replaced and the data on them backed-up to newer drives. This includes older DVD's that you may have burned they have a very limited reliable life span.

  2. Instead I am going to buy a Seagate 3.5 SATA3 Hard Drive (500GB) as harddrive. Are the things compatible with each other?
  3. Go ahead and tell us your budget and we will put you together a build.
  4. try and buy a better power supply like a corsair unit. low end power supply if they fail can take out a whole system..a lot of cheap power supply are not rated for what there stamped.

    Is this Power Supply good enough: Win Power 650W Power Supply

    Store to buy it:http://klikk.com.mt/#scatid=2:catid=22:prodid=2375

    I can't spend a ton of money.

    been around 2007 there been some power supply testing of this power supply..all good. the reviews for your power supply all have been bad.
  7. Is 700W Alpine Quiet Fan ATX Power Supply good enough?

    Yes it's fully compatible with the components that I already listed as "The following parts list are fine:".

    The SATA3 interface is backwards compatible with SATA2 interface and in the instance of a mechanical drive there is no performance differences (gains or loss).

    Note - the H61 chipset is the only non-RAID LGA 1155 chipset, and RAID if needed you'll need a RAID Card.

    Do I need RAID for a SATA3 harddrive? Is the NOX Urano II 630W PSU good?
  10. No, I was only alerting you to the fact of the H61's limitation. I am an advocate of redundant RAID's and backups. If your single HDD fails then you lose all of your data and recovery is not an easy process.

    All of my PC's except an HTPC (Media PC) have their data drives in RAID 1 (mirrored ; cloned drives) and backed-up daily at minimum.
  11. Is the NOX Urano II 630W PSU good for my PC?
  12. I know nothing about NOX PSU's, and all I know is it doesn't have any Efficiency rating which is a sign of a sub-par PSU; see - http://www.realhardtechx.com/index_archivos/Page2438.htm

    The PSU's I recommend are Corsair, SeaSonic and Enermax.

    I found a Corsair 500W CX500 Builder Series V2. Is it good?

    Thanks
  14. Yep, that'll work just fine. :)
