My new build, tell me whatcha think

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm new to this forum but have built a system in the past. Over the weekend I ordered a new system for a new "family computer". Heres what I chose, leave me feedback please

CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+(65W) Windsor 2.0GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor

Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-M55SLI-S4 Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

Case: Winsis WA-06 w/ PSU Black SGCC/ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 400W Power Supply

Harddrives:Western Digital Caviar SE WD1600JS 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive Set up in a RAID 0 array

GPU: BFG Tech BFGR76256GTOCE GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card

Ram: 2 x G.SKILL 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5400) Desktop Memory

I wasnt sure about the power supply that came with the case, if needbe it can be replaced. Overclocking will be kept to a minimum if any, like I said it's the family computer, used mainly for surfing the web, word processing, storing pictures, and for my little bro to play Warcraft III. I wanted to have the capabilities to run the newer games if needed incase he decides to get Oblivion or something like that. Let me know what yall think. Thanks
