Hi, trying to build a new system that'll hopefully last me about five years (probably have no cash hanging around for upgrades -have to get mortgage, car etc. etc) so I'm trying to make it a good 'un. The specs are:-
430w PSU (enermax EG465P)
coolermaster ATC 110 SX1 case
P4 2.8 box (though using arctic silver3 so posibility of getting better cooler for Ocing later....)
Gigabyte GA-8IHXP - mobo
Gigabyte Radeon 9700 pro
Kingston PC1066 256MB rimms (2 of these)
USR 56k USB modem
Game Theatre XP 6.1
Keyboard and mouse
Altec 5100 6pc speakers
anyone had any conflicts with any of these? would I do better getting different parts? Do I need anything else?
Make sure you get game controller(s) (i.e. gamepad, joystick, etc.) for this system, because there's nothing more frustrating than playing QuakeIII with a keyboard. And speaking of games played with a keyboard, if ya like real-time-strategy games, buy Age of Mythology (not available til late october 2002 but can be pre-ordered). You won't be sorry!
