Hi

Im interested to build my own computer from scatch. This is my first computer so could you tell me if this list contains all the parts I would need to build a working pc. Also are all these parts compatible with each other?

Case
Casecom KL-999 ATX Tower Case with LCD temp display and 350w PSU

Motherboard
MSI K9NGM-L nForce 410 Socket AM2 SATA onboard VGA 8 channel audio mATX

Processor
Athlon 64 3800 Dual Core 2.0GHz L2 cache AM2 940 pin

Hard Drive
Maxtor 6G160E0 160GB 7200 RPM SATAII/300 8MB Cache - OEM

RAM
1GB DDR2 800 MHz PC2-6400 240pin 2 x 512 KIT
- is it better to get this as a single stick?

PSU
Sansun True 450W 20/24pin ATX PSU

Graphics card
256MB MSI Radeon RX1300PRO-TD256E


Also:
Anti-static wrist band
Microsoft OEM Windows XP Home SP2B (Release 2) x32bit - 1PK
LiteON LH-18A1P-483C 18x DVDRW/RAM Bare Beige OEM
Samsung Floppy drive SFD 321B Beige
Belkin PCI Adapter & Pre-n Mimo Wireless - Notebook Adapter
Case fans
12" Blue Dual Cold Cathode Kit
Logitech Cordless Desktop EX 110 Optical
17" CRT Moniter


I am trying to build on a low budget as I am 14 so would all these parts be good enough for my use? I would be playing games like CS 1.6 and Call Of Duty 1 & 2, Using the internet, word documents, etc so i do not need a top end machine. Would I need any extras like cables, tools, etc to make the computer work?

Thanks very much for your time

Hi, thanks for the reply. I'm living in Cambridgeshire, UK and I'm hoping to keep the cost under £500 with everything included.

Have you already priced up what you've posted, and if so which site/retailer have you used?

Hi ,If its a retail boxed mobo they usualy come with a set of internal cables . You might need a kettle lead to go from the psu to the mains .
You'll definitly need a good cpu cooler , thats not on your list .
Go for good quality quiet fans .
Get good quality main components , you can add on the flashy extras later , you might even get some of them as presents .

Heres a few links I've found useful .

http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/106538

http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Products.ASP?CatID=16&Category=Hard+Drives+Int&Thumbnails=yes

http://www.quietpc.com/gb-en-gbp/home

Enter the competition on the last link and if your lucky your nearly halfway to your budget :D

Hi again. The processor, hard drive, graphics card, OS and DVD drive I'm planning to buy from CCL Computers. The motherboard, RAM, case/psu and all the other accessories (fans, keyboard, wireless adapter etc) are on ebuyer. I'm expecting to buy a CRT monitor from ebay to keep costs low. The total price at the moment is about £480 inc. postage.

Thanks for all the links. Might enter that quietpc comp too :)

You should be Ok with this but! a 450-500w psu would be more appropriate as you have noted.
Motherboard
MSI K9NGM-L nForce 410 Socket AM2 SATA onboard VGA 8 channel audio mATX

Processor
Athlon 64 3800 Dual Core 2.0GHz L2 cache AM2 940 pin

These are fine.
RAM
1GB DDR2 800 MHz PC2-6400 240pin 2 x 512 KIT

Two 512 would be better but! as your going to play games 2x1GB is advisable.

PSU
Sansun True 450W 20/24pin ATX PSU
Yes
Graphics card
256MB MSI Radeon RX1300PRO-TD256E
Yes

Also:
Anti-static wrist band

With most retail purchases every thing you need comes with them.

i'll agree on the psu comment to the extent of saying that 450 is a little low these days, but not that bad. still, i'd go with a 500 to err on the safe side.
