All of those things look alright with me. None of them should be incompatible with anything. Or each other.

Nothing wrong with putting different parts into a new system.

Altho, not too sure abolut foxconn ps's. They maybe a bit dodgy / might not be reliable enough to use as a power supply. I would get XP or 2K or higher, for the SATA tho...If you're going to install Windows.

The hardware peeps seem to be on sabatical, I'll keep you company in the meantime.

What are you using for video?

Everything else looks like it fits together ok although I haven't heard of the case or PSU, the latter is IMO very important to go quality. Also, although Foxcon are a big manufacturer of boards I believe their own brand is more in the bufget range (anyone care to correct that?) so, what are you wanting to use the computer for and whats your approximate budget, if you don't mind? If it's limited it may be better to go AMD and use the savings on a decent PSU and RAM.

The video is onboard due to price constraints as well as the audio.

The updated component list is what the my friend wants well at least the procesor and motherboard.

Ittl be used for low end games and LOTS of music.

Id like to spend less than 700.

Speedy Gonzales
02-03-2005, 10:39 PM
I doubt you'll get all that for < 700.

Especially with the 775 pin mobos and the CPU.

These 2 alone would take up most of the $700. Well might be a bit cheaper with a Celeron. BUT its a waste of a CPU on a 775 pin mobo.

the final price on those parts in the update is $652

And i got free shipping

Speedy Gonzales

And where are you?? in NZ? or somewhere else?

Murray P
02-03-2005, 10:47 PM
Don't think S666 is talking NZ dollars Speedy.

The board looks ok, MSI have a reasonable name.

Plextor is a nice burner.

You won't be playing too many modern games with onboard video, even an onboard nForce chipset will struggle with todays average game (for AMD CPU's only at the mo, although the Intel processor version will be out shortly, at a price). But at least you have the option of getting a card later.

I just need to know if its compatible or if im missing any thing vital.
i need to just be able to put these parts together and have it work.

satan666cob
02-03-2005, 10:49 PM
So its good?

Speedy Gonzales
02-03-2005, 10:51 PM
Ah ok well no wonder its cheaper lol.

Everything will definitely work OK. We cant really tell what maybe cheaper, as prices would be different, where u r and where we are.

So, what we say anyway, wont help much, in price anyway.

satan666cob
02-03-2005, 10:54 PM
the price is not a huge deal.but if that stuff will plug and play. with windows install i think im good

satan666cob
02-03-2005, 10:57 PM
where are u BTW

Speedy Gonzales
02-03-2005, 10:58 PM
Everything will be plug and plug no prob.

But XP or windows 2000 would be better for SATA, and bigger hard drives.

And use NTFS if u DO use XP or 2k. XP SHOULD detect more devices, without asking for drivers.... You'll still have to install drivers off the mobo cd, for things like the soundcard / LAN, and what else is onboard the mobo.

Windows 2000 may ask for the 2k CD, depending on what the device is...

New Zealand Satan.. I think most of the guys who post in this forum are from NZ. Correct me if Im wrong.

Altho with SATA, depending on whether you're going to use RAID or not. Some mobos will let u install onto a SATA no prob at all (from a clean install), well with XP.

Some are pretty fussy, and expect you to make a SATA driver disk from the CD, before it'll install Windows 2k or XP onto the SATA, if you're going to make a SATA a boot disk with a OS on it.
