Hi guys im building my second system, i still dont know alot about parts and what graphics cards will fit in the case and so on as my mate helped me with the majority of the build. This is my first pc and what i have in it at the moment -

THERMALTAKE V3 BLACK 120mm Case Fan WINDOW 450watt POWER Model: VL84521W2A -$77

AMD Athlon II X2 260 Dual Core 2meg CACHE 3.2Ghz Socket AM3 -$69

ASUS M4N68T-M V2 nVidia nForce 630A Intergrated Video DualCh DDR3 1800Mhz (OC) 8Channel HDAudio -$55


Western Digital 500 gig 7200rpm SATAII YX RE4 64meg Cache CAVIAR BLACK Model: WD5003ABYX -$78

SAPPHIRE HD5670 1GB GDDR3 DVI / HDMI / D-Sub -$75

KINGSTON Twin Pack 2x4 gig (8gig Total) DDR3 1333Mhz (PC3-10600) -$75

Thats pretty much the lot except for monitor keyboard and the other crap. Here is the link to my checkout(see if it would be ok), i would like as much feedback and help as possible. Thanks guys

Your link doesn't show anything. It says "Your Cart Is Empty".
Yes, with the components your mentioned, your system would work.

Thanks.

you can get an Athlon IIx3 455 Rana 3.1GHz for $74.99. Thats a lot better cpu that what you have, and if you are gaming, you need a better PSU and a better GPU...Old hardware for a "new" system.

Your PSU is not up to par. Odin from Gigabyte? Never heard of it. Gigabyte is a great company, but for PSUs i would highly suggest sticking with Corsair, XFX, OCZ, Antec, Silverstone, and Seasonic. There are enough options out there to fit your budget, here are some i would highly recommend around your current PSU's price tag:

Any of these would be great choices, and still inside your budget (from the PSU you chose). Quality PSUs are often overlooked, but should be the first thing you decide on for a high end gaming system.
