Another "I need help" thread from me, heh.

I'm heavily thinking about building my own PC now. Something to do, cheaper and all that jazz.

But before i get down to ordering everything, i would like to know if everything is compatible.

Motherboard/GFX card:

Processor:

HDD:

RAM:

Tower:

DVD/RW:

CD/RW:
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/products/index.html?action=c2hvd19wcm9kdWN0X292ZXJ2aWV3&product_uid=82877


Right, thats the parts i'm getting. Could anyone with greater knowledge than i tell me if everything sounds about right there?

Oh, and i'm investing in this cute set of tools too, heh:

And an anti-static wristband to boot.

Any assistant ASAP, greatly appreciated.


EDIT: Hmm, i expected those links to be clickable. Darn.
EDIT2: Holy hell, i used img links, haha. Christ, its been a long day.

Everything looks like it will work just fine. I would suggest buying a beefier power supply though. 350W is a bit low in todays PC world.

Ah-ha, thank you.

I had originally had a 500w psu in the basket, but then noticed there was already a supplied psu.

So really, i might be better off getting a tower with no psu and then just ordering the 500w one separately?

yes, anyone on this forum will tell you never to use the power supplies that are supplied with the cases

I would either get a case and supply separately or if you have the cash, buy a case with the supply and then another supply just in case (swap the one in the case for the other one). A backup is never a bad idea. You definitely want to go at least 450 but 500 is the best way to go, especially if you are gonna run multiple drives and it doesn't hurt if you want to add some flashy lights and a whole whack of casefans.

Grinch2171 is spot on. The PSU in this case will not be up to the task for long but would make a great backup for a short time if you need it.

My suggestion for power is the Antec NEO 480W. I have this in my system powering a P4, 2 optical drives, big video card, 4 hard drives, and a host of other things (lights and other "bling" items). The power output does not fluxuate at all, and also allows you to only use the cables that you need for your system which will eliminate the clutter inside the case as a nice bonus.

Enjoy your new box. :)
