Hey Guys,

I am planning to build my first computer. It will mainly serve as a
gaming computer, as well a school tool. The OS will be Windows XP Pro
(from my old computer). Here are my core components, first revision:

    ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe Wireless Edition
    AMD 64 X2 5000+ Windsor
    Geforce 7950GT KO 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16
    Segate Barracuda 7200.10 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA (x2)
    RAID 0 configuration
    Kingston 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) System Memory (x2)
    NEC DVD+R 3550A
    Samsung 204B
    NeoPower 550W
    Antec P-180B Case
    Logitech MX1000
    Logitech G15

Do you think that all these pieces will function well together? Here is
a list of the games that I would like to play on it: Rise of Nations,
Rise of Legends, Civilization 4, Command and Conquer: The First Decade,
Command and Conquer 3 (when it comes out), and Star Wars: Empire at
War. My price window is $2100 - 2400. Thanks for the help.

Re: 1st home built computer

you seem to have picked out some great pieces. my only comment would be
regarding your ram. from all i have read, the biggest issue with recent
builds and asus is to make sure that you use ram that is suggested by
them. that is not to say that the kingston you have chosen would be a
problem,  or is not suggested by them, but i would just look into it to
possibly save yourself a headache down the line.

good luck. have fun.
