  1. Hello, I am trying to build my own computer for the first time and I don't know how compatibility works. I was wondering if these components are all compatible:

    dimensions - 19.5" x 8.3" x 18.9"

    Memory:
    CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory

    Video Card:
    XFX PVT84JUDD3 GeForce 8600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16
    Video card

    Motherboard:
    ASUS P5N-E SLI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
    dimensions - 12.0" x 9.0"

    Processor:

    THANKS FOR THE HELP!

    Everything looks good. I would get a different power supply, but that NewEgg Rosewill will likely be ok unless you are a big gamer.

    I would stick with that brand name PSU, unless it's giving you problems then you could change it for ANTEC or better PSU. Most generic PSU are pretty good then some are bad.. You can tell when it goes..
