Advice please

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello all, new to the forum but have been reading it a while. I'm building a new machine and would like some opinions. I'd like to be able to play some newer games, not neccissarly Cyris, but better than what I have been. This is what I've ordered from Newegg. I'm pretty happy with it but am starting to second guess my powersupply choice. Is it good enough for this rig. I'm not going to SLI, at least for now and won't be overclocking.... much

BIOSTAR TA770 A2+ AM2+/AM2 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Brisbane 2.5GHz Socket AM2 65W Dual-Core Processor

mushkin 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)


Rosewill R604-P SL 120mm Fan ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

XFX PVT88PYHE4 GeForce 8800GT Extreme 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0

Rosewill RP550V2-S-SL 550W SLI Ready-ATX12V V2.01 Power Supply

I know this probably outdated for alot of you, but I'm coming from an athlon XP 1800+ so it should be a huge upgrade for me and in my budget. Your opinions are greatly appreciated. Liike I said, my biggest worry is the power supply, but if someone sees something else that is a potential disaster, speak up

I am fine with it (including PSU). The current rosewills aren't all that bad. (and PR500 V2 got a very nice review on Jonnyguru).

And for under $500, this set up is hard to beat.

(no, I do NOT want to hear the word Intel..ok?)

Don't want you getting the wrong RAM.

Not that your RAM is bad, I know the list above is tried and tested and known to work well with the mobo.

Thanks guys. Yes I already have OS.. WinXP, not ready to try Vista yet. I also looked at the ram and compatability. I know the ram I picked isn't on the list, but I did a search for that MB and ram and found other people on the net using the combo and didn't post any problems. Hopefully it works out for me, if not I guess I'll have to switch ram.
