  1. Hi guys new to these boards, wondering if you guys could see any possible problems with components i'm going to use to build a new PC (i've never built one before) used mostly for gaming and ensuring longevity:

    Cooler Master Cavalier 3 Black(Without PSU)
    Creative SB Live! 24-bit BulkPCI Soundcard, EAX, 7.1, 24-bit/96KHz
    Intel Pentium 4 650 3.4GHz SocketLGA775, 2MB, EM64T, BOXED w/fan
    Samsung SpinPoint P120S 200GB SATA28MB 7200RPM NCQ
    Fortron/Source Powersupply ATX 400W120mm Fan, SATA, 24pin
    Samsung DVD recorder TS-H552U Black OEM
    Gainward GeForce 7800GTX 256MB 2xDVIPCI-Express,"U/3500PCX XP GS"ViVo,470MHz
    Gigabyte GA-8N SLI Pro,nVidia,Socket-775,ATX, SATAII, GbLAN, DDR2, 2XPCI-Ex16

    2Gb DDR2-667 PC-5400 (5300) Mushkin Dual Channel
    Manufacturer: Mushkin - Part number: 991382 - Warranty: Lifetime
    (2x 1Gb DDR2-667 PC2-5300 240 pin modules), 240 pins, DDR2 DIMM, 667 MHz, CAS4, Rated 4-4-4-11. No heatspreaders, unbuffered, non-ECC, 1.8-2V

    I know a lot think AMD are better then Intel, but i'd rather stick with Intel
    and is 4-4-4-11 a good ram rating?

    4-4-4-11 isn't a good rating, but for that speed of the RAM, it is fine. You're gonna need some major fans in that system to cool off the processor, gfx card and the RAM. Also, you might want a little more power, that is the minumun wattage recommended for your gfx card, so get something with a little more kick. Other than that, I think you're good to go, tell us the outcome!
