i've decided to build my own computer...are all these components compatible:

AMD Athlon 64bit 3000+ 754pin/512 L2Cache
Soltek SKT754 8xAGP K8T800 SATA sound USB 2.0
XFX GeForce Fx5600XT 128MB DR AGP 8x DVI TV-Out
Seagate ST3120026A 120Gb 7200rpm 8mb Cache Barracuda 7200.7 Plus - OEM
Sony 8x DVD+R 8xDVD-R 4x DVD-RW 24CDRW IDE Burner OEM
Sony OEM 3.5" Floppy Drive
Kingston 256 DDR400 PC3200 Memory Module x2
Thermaltake AMD Optero and Athlon 64 CPU Cooler


it's mostly for gaming...also is there anything essential that is missing (i've probably left out a really important part that has slipped my memory)

also where could i get a decent modded PC Case for cheap...for the UK

ditch the A64 for another 18months or so.

go for an athlon XP system.

2 X 512mb pc2700 would do if u are trying to cut costs. and name brand crossair, mushkin etc. 150 approx

i have an A7n8X-X board very cheap does the trick. 50 off either dabs.com or komplett.co.uk

if u don't have a gfx card get a ti4200 or a ti4600 off ebay (i did). approx 50

the best dvd writer on the market today is the TDK indi. 99
sony don't seem to be getting good reviews. v.picky about media.

i bought an LG dvd writer 8X etc etc. 70 dabs.com

why do you need a floppy drive if you have a dvd writer?

best cooler for athlon xp less than $10 spire whisperrock IV never went over 50C under load. - 7 - komplett.co.uk

enermax, antec are good psus. silent X PSU's are totally silent.

antec super lanboy is a good case. 65 overclock.co.uk

if i had money i'd want the lian li PC-V1000 case :drool:
150 - hahaha
what is your budget?

that like 500 with plenty of room for any probems that may occur.

hard drives go about 65 for 120Gb or 160Gb

you could upgrade the board to an A7N8X Deluxe approx 90 - no performance boost but more features.

I wouldn't suggest a XP system anymore, go with the athlon 64.

it's just a really bad time to buy your new pc. the new socket 939 is coming in the next month(s). also the new dual layer dvd-writer and with the 939 cpus the new nvidia nforce boards

anyway a a64 3000+ system is also nice, power supply depends on the brand. good 300W power supplys are much better than any noname 400-500w stuff. I would suggest you to buy a nice 350+W power supply - should do the job.

wait, wait, wait, wait, till when?

when i was buying my computer DDR II was comming out, PCI-X, PCI-E, 64-bit.

when the 939's come out they'll be soo out of his price range it won't even be funny. and they ain't comming out anytime soon.

if your lucky the back end of this year. but most likeyl next year.

i will have my 2600+ for another 18months+.

there is always something new comming out. :shrug:
