Quick build for dad

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My dads looking to (finally) upgrade from his old P4 3.0GHz. Here is something I put together for him, thoughts? Suggestions all appreciated. He also has a 400Watt aftermarket PSU he had to buy, it should run all this ok, correct?

I doubt your dad needs an SSD. Use that money for 4GB of ram? Also why put a matx build in an atx case? I dunno it just seems counter productive in that your losing features from an atx mobo but still using a big case. What PSU is it? I don't know much about AMD but what about this? http://ncix.com/products/index.php?s...s&promoid=1219

a 500GB hdd is $50 shipped anywhere else, check zipzoomfly. 1 2GB stick of ddr2-800 for $50, you might as well spend the extra $20 and get a 4gb set. dvd burners are usually $20 shipped at the egg or zzf. cases, any cheapo will do, the egg usually has some dirt cheap after rebate and free shipping.

He's in Canada so I would recommend NCIX since they have an easter sale right now.
