Will this do decent/ all work together

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So this is gonna b my first comp build so im still pondering if itll all work together, like everythings supported, and also if sometimes i should maybe spend alil more on (although im basically at my budget)

Antec Performance One P160 ATX Mi
PS 600W - Thermaltake W0083RU PurePower E
120mm - Antec 120mm SmartCool Case Fan
Asus P5LD2 Deluxe 945P Audio/GB-LAN/IEEE
Intel Pentium D 920 LGA775 2.8GHz 2MB per core
1 GB (2 pcs 512) DDR2 (667) PC2-5400 OCZ Gold GX XTC
SATA3G - Western Digital Caviar SE 250 GB
DVD±RW - Pioneer DVR-110DBK Dual-Layer
EVGA GeForce 7900 GT CO Superclock 256MB

I think it should do good but im not sure so yea, any advice would be appreciated

The main thing im wonderin if the graphics card, some people have been sayin the 7800's were better and easier to o/c.

Just make sure that the CPU is the same socket as the mobo. (i don't know intels that well, last time i looked like a complete idiot) Other than that make sure your mobo can support your HD, you should know everything else. Great GFX card.

Oh, and make sure your mobo is a NF4 chipset, and not some ati, or i don't think you will be able to run your GFX card. Anyone else please correct me if i'm wrong, I'm learning too!

Looks good......however (not to be a fanboi), If you want to do some relativley heavy gaming, I would look into AMD's skt939.

I believe that is wrong. Anyways if your a gamer as said above get a AMD 939 processor. Also I've never had good luck w/ the ATI motherboard chips, I prefer the nvidia nForce chipset. Never failed me. But its all opinion. Think and do much research before you buy. As I used to be all ATI and Pentium, in the last year i've switched to AMD and nvidia. (except w/ my Pentium M laptop........)

The ASUS P5WD2-E Premium is a much better motherboard for that 920. You can get the 920 up to 4.0Ghz on air easily with that combo.

A much better selection for the PSU is the Sunbeam NUUO 520W.

You can also do better with some faster memory to give you some good headroom:

Patriot Extreme 1GB DDR2-800

That is pretty much my build, and it is great.

Also, if you can get the regular 7900GT it will be cheaper. There is NO difference between the EVGA GeForce 7900 GT CO Superclock 256MB and just a EVGA 7900GT.

Yea, all they are doing is charging you for extra clock cycles which you can obtain yourself by OC'ing!
post #8 of 9
Uh, every company (AMD, Intel, ATI, nVidia) charges extra for more clock cycles...That's not all they charge you for, but whatever.
post #9 of 9
*sigh* nightdagger: They charge you to OC the card by like a few MHz. You can do that yourself was my point. So, therefore, they are charging for extra cycles you can obtain yourself for cheaper.
