You might have to check if the RAM is compatible with the mobo and processor, however seeing that its the AM3 socket, it probably will be.
Hmm and reading online it says the gtx 275 requires 550 W, this is a 500 W supply, should i get a six?
That PSU will be fine. They always overstate the power requirements, to make room for the idiots that buy shit from brands like Logisys.
Alright thanks.
AM3 socket is ddr3 only. PSU is fine, if you'll be doing SLI in the future with a diffferent board, you'll need more wattage. But you're past the requirements. Coolermaster is trusted. Looks good :)
Power supply is never something to skimp on. Don't go with super cheap "high watt" ones.
That's a great budget psu, to bad it went up 10 bucks. Looks like a great build, have fun.
So the ram and all is compat? Awsome
I would grab this version of vista. [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832116677[/url] Free Win7.

[QUOTE=ReznorT;16452175]No it is DDR2 and DDR3[/QUOTE] huh? am3 socket mobos are ddr3 only.
Wait, so tell me will this ram work or not.
Yes it will.
[QUOTE=Unreliable;16452639]huh? am3 socket mobos are ddr3 only.[/QUOTE] Many AM3 mobos support socket AM2+ and AM2 CPUs. Therefore, they also support DDR2. To be frank, there is no great performance benefit with DDR3 over DDR2, at least on the AMD platform.
I suggest you get the DDR3 1066MHz RAM actually, it's cheaper and the performance wise is [b]THE SAME*[/b] as DDR3 1333MHz. *When I mean the same it is like 1-2 nanoseconds difference.
Depends on the latencies.

I thought he meant just AM3 support. Anything that involves AM2+ will be ddr2 (fix me if wrong). [editline]3:56[/editline] alrighty then.

[QUOTE=Unreliable;16452639]huh? am3 socket mobos are ddr3 only.[/QUOTE] Am2+ can be upgraded to am3, as long as the ram is clocked at 1066 AM3 can use DDR2 or 3 Am2 is ddr2 only
