  1. Hello all,
    Well i am planning on building me a decent mid range rig for around 700$. I have done extensive research and have found the parts that i believe will be perfect for me. The only issue i have with this is that i dont know if these parts will be good for one another. Considering this is my first build, i dont really know what works with what and i dont want to run the risk of frying something. So here is what i got picked out:

    Lite-On LH-20A1P SuperAllwrite DVD Burner
    Ultra X-Blaster Black ATX Mid-Tower Case
    ASUS M2R32-MVP ATX Motherboard
    Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD2500KSRTL 250GB Hard Drive
    Corsair Dual Channel TWINX 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz RAM
    EVGA 256-P2-N615-TX GeForce 7600GT Video Card
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Brisbane 2.6GHz CPU
    Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2-DB ATX V2.2 500W PSU

    That should be all i need to get it started. Need anymore information on it let me know!

    Looks good to me, let us know how it goes.

    Only thing I dont like much is the psu, keep an eye on it, let us know what your voltages are after you boot and all that good stuff. GL

    Thermaltake, Antec, one of those more popular brands I would have chosen for your setup. I personally havnt had success with Rosewill, but I hope that you will.
