Is this a decent system?

  1. Ok, I am going to build a new pc and just wanted to run it past you guys before I went on with it.

    Some of these parts I have, others I dont, the parts that I already have will be in RED:

    CPU = Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 Conroe
    MOBO = Intel DP965LT
    Graphics Card = ASUS EN7600GT SILENT
    RAM = Legend 1gb 800mhz 240pin
    Case = Antec LifeStyle SONATA II
    HDD = Western Digital Caviar 200gb 7200rpm
    PSU = 450watt Antec Smartpower
    DVD Burner = LG 16x dual layer
    DVD reader/cd burner = LG Combo Drive
    Floppy = Standard
    Monitor = Samsung Syncmaster 753s (maybe I will upgrade to LCD soon)
    Mouse = Microsoft Optical Scroll
    Keyboard = Standard Microsoft Keyboard




    That is just about it. Are all these components compatible with eachother?

    Is this system relatively future proof? I wont have to upgrade in a year?

    Is it upgradable? Ie: Will I be able to upgrade to more advanced technology without having to replace mobo etc...?

    Regards,

    Looks like an all-around solid performer.

    I'm envious!

    you may want to go with a different mobo, intels are not good for overclocking or do not have the feauers you want, check out some msi, dfi or asus boards

    Yuo also may want to cosider getting an atix1800xt for a little bit more, its a better preforumer for games
    other then that it looks good

    good luck with your build

    The intel motherboard is the only board that I can get which is compatible with my CPU and has a i965 chipset.

    I will stick with the 7600gt.

    Are these components all compatible with eachother?
