Hey guys, I have decided to build a computer just for some home use and maybe a little gaming, (GTA San Andreas, etc.).
I am getting a Pentium D 2.8 GHz Dual-Core (775 Socket) for cheap off of E-Bay.I will be using the Sapphire Radeon 3650 AGP Graphics card, and will be ordering a 350 Watt power supply. Will the Graphics card be able to run on this 350 Watt PSU? Please help! :(

You will be ok with that power supply, unless you order a bad one. Stick with brands like Antec, seasonic, etc...

Also make sure you get the GDDR3 version of that video card not the DDR2 one.

Are you sure you have AGP on your system or a PCIe slot? I did not think that the 775 socket had any motherboards with AGP.

It's an AGP slot. Also, I will be buying this case that comes with PSU. Is it OK? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Frisby-ATX [...] 320wt_1270
Also, why should I stick with GDDR3? Is there a problem with GDDR2? Also I have the MSI 848P MoBo

That link does not work for me.

The only problem with the DDR2 version is that it's slower. Not really a "problem" but if you are buying the card to play games on, why get a slower version. That card is slow enough compared to other cards anyway, no need to get a slow version of it.

When getting San Andreas download multi theft auto great online San Andreas multiplayer mod.

The psu should be powerful enough but if you want to upgrade in the future get a 450w
