Hello everyone. I am about to order some parts so i can make my girlfriend a computer with some old parts of my computer. She has been using a notebook with very little ram. She left it on all the time and apparently its dead (havent taken a look at it) . She is looking for a computer that wont have any type of memory problems, and a smooth processor so she can have as many windows and programs as she wants and have a ****load of hard drive memory so she can watch her series and listen to her songs.. the old parts im giving her are:
Processor: Intel e6600
+zalman (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835118046)
Motherboard: ASUS P5WDG2-WS
PSU: Rosewill RP550-2 ATX 2.01 550W Power Supply

The new parts:
RAM: g.skill 4gb - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-122-_-Product

Hard drive: Seagate 1.5tb - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-337-_-Product

Monitor: Asus 24" - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-049-_-Product

Case: Antec 300 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-042-_-Product

Keyboard - g15
mouse: logitech mx518

Any recomendations? Something you would change? She wants 24" for monitor and not a huge case. So any good stuff with get u +rep. Comments and suggestions are VERY WELCOMED thx

0.0

OP: Looks fine
Are you going to want to overclock that chip at all?

EDIT: On a side note, does she really need that g15? This keyboard:

has gotten good reviews and is much cheaper. Backlit too!
Oh wait out of stock >.>

I'd get a 1TB samsung F3 instead of the 1.5 seagate

I'd get a H50 instead of the zalman

Avoid the $75 Zalman cooler. Get her a Freezer 7 Pro, or a Xiggy 1283 / 963. Also avoid the Seagate drives. Get the F3 Samsung instead. They're on sale for $58.99 on newegg (or were last time I checked). Much more reliable, and they're a faster drive.

EDIT:
Seriously, stay away from that Seagate drive. That's a 7200.11, which were plagued with random deaths due to faulty firmware. They supposedly released a fix, but they still had issues. Get the F3, it won't disappoint.

Agree with above sentiments...
Avoid the Seagate 7200.11 line and get a Samsung F3 or a WD Blue.
There are tons better deals on coolers that work better. The Zalman is expensive and doesn't work very well for your trouble.
