  1. hi.
    I'm designing a desktop for gaming and online gaming with a strict budget and limited hardwares to choose from.

    currently i have these items:

    cpu: athlon AM2 X2 7750+
    motherboard: ASUS M2N68-AM
    graphic card: SAPPHIRE HD3650
    hard disk drive: SEAGATE 16M ST2 320G
    memory: KINGSTON PC800 D2 2GB
    monitor: ASUS 19”VW193T
    odd: SAMSUNG SATA DVDRW
    power supply: GIGABYTE SUPERB 460W
    thermal solution: COOLER MASTER HYPER TX2
    casing: GIGABYTE TRITON 180 CASING
    speaker: LOGITECH S 100 / 2 PIECE
    keyboard + mouse: LOGITECH G1 DEKSTOP GAMING

    are these items compatible with each other and suitable for gaming? and is it necessary for the extra cpu cooler?
