Please Double Check My Build

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Helping a friend build a computer, and these are the parts we've selected.

Can you guys make sure it all works together. This is my first time dealing with Intel parts. Also is there anywhere we could improve on, price or performance wise.

Also keep in mind some of the parts are going to be bought of Amazon because they're cheaper there and we don't have to pay tax on Amazon.

Also, I saw these two pairs of RAM too:

and

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145218

Which is the "best" out of the three.

All and all looks like you have a solid budget build. I saw nothing wrong with the parts they all go good together. you made good use of newegg discounts and mail in rebates.

Ugh, actually I don't know about that one anymore, it's gotten a lot of 1 egg/star reviews on Newegg/Amazon, respectively.

EDIT:

Is there a reason why the 1 GB version of that GPU is cheaper than the 512 MB version?

Well it was better than the kingstons and crucials, my personal suggestion would be these

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231425

The 1gb version is probably on sale.

Aaah, nope it's because the 1 GB version if DDR3 while the 512 MB is DDR5.

Here's the DDR5 1GB version, haha.

Check out the G.Skill ram or Mushkin. Mushkin has been good to me for 10 years running.
