Thread: Are These Compatable?

  1. #1
    Hello, I am going to build a new PC, just for myself, so it is nothing huge. Just simple, yet still an upgrade from my shitty one i have now.
    this is what i came up with for a reasonable price. are all these parts compatable with each other, or do they have to be? i guess i just want to know if this will work if i buy these parts.

    Greenlyph Standard P4/Athlon Mid Tower ATX Case 420W <-Case
    Western Digital 80GB 2MB 7200RPM WD800BB <-HD
    Generic 512MB PC2700 333MHz DDR Memory <-Ram
    ASUS A7V600, 400FSB, SATA, GB LAN, Onboard Sound <-Mobo
    AMD Athlon XP 2500+ (Barton) <-Processor
    Powercolor RADEON 9200SE 128MB Dual Head Retail <Video Card


    PS. i already have a CDRW, ethernet adapter, and a floppy drive, so i do not need them, and along with the top question, is there any other main components i forgot?&#33;

    your mobo is good
    although these questions have to be addressed.
    What are you going to use this computer for (extreme gaming or simple uses)
    Are you going to OC ANYTHING in the set up??
    (the included heat sink will be ok as long as you don&#39;t oc too much B) )

    It is just as a simple computer in my room
    will be playing some detailed games though such as counter strike condition zero and wolfenstein enemy territory, online gaming as well.
    and the mobo listed above is priced at approx &#036;130 canadian, which isnt bad i dont think.
    and i am not familiar with "OCing"

    An alternate motherboard would be the Asus A7N8X Deluxe v2.0.

    I just got one and I love it.

    OC= overclocking, something that your Barton core 2500 is supposed to be very good at.

    good advise clocker(check your PM) umm OC would be to make your computer go faster than what the CPU says, however i think what you have is ok and for the moment you should not worrie about overclocking...

    kaiwailer, I am using my standard heatsink and fan, with only two additional case fans, and I have prefectly fine temps, as shown in my sig.

    Now, what I would suggest, like nearly EVERYONE does with their Barton, is get the 3200 DDR-Ram, 400Mhz for your Barton, seeing as how it can easily go to 400Mhz side bus, as well as your motherboard was designed for it.

    Then, just tweak the settings on the overclocking, keep and eye on temps, and get things in the area you want them to be (I would draw the line at At the very most 53Idle and 53 Load)
