  1. Hey everyone. I am finally about ready to buy my future system. I think i have just about what i need, but i would like to have some people tell me their opinions about it and make suggestions about it. I'm building a gamer computer.

    MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum

    AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Venice

    Graphics Card

    eVGA Geforce 7600GT 256MB PCI-Express

    Power supply

    XCLIO ATX 450W

    CORSAIR 1GB (2 x 512MB) DDR SDRAM DDR 400


    ASPIRE X-Dreamer

    Well what do you think? I know its not going to be the ULTRA GAME SYSTEM, but i think it will be decent. I'm kinda on a budget :blush:

    For a budget system, I think your setup above will treat you very well, and once you feel it is too slow for you, you can always upgrade more in the future. Some great choices there!

    I do question that power supply though. How many amps does it have on the 12v rail(s)? How much does it cost?

    I'm not sure if this will help but here ya go

    +3.3V@32A, +5V@30A, +12V1@15A, +12V2@17A, -12V@0.3A, +5VSB@2A

    as for the cost, its 40$

    Looks like it has some decent power on the 12v rails.

    It this it here?

    If so, it looks like it is a decent one. If that is not the one you are getting, I highly recommend searching for and reading some reviews. Cheap PSUs are a nightmare to work with and cause extremely hard to diagnose system glitches/failures.

    You know that is very close to the setup I'm planning to go. Got the RAMs and the video card (exactly same models), going to get Venice 3200+ this weekend and was unsure about the mobo but was thinking about neo4..

    However, I'd recommend you check the psu I got from newegg; I bought it with a very good rebate and noticed that every two weeks it has some kind of rebate for couple days. It is this Cooler Master psu. .. It might be a better solution for about the same amount.

    I am looking for a good case though, and will check yours now.. Good luck on your build.
