    Will this work (I want to order it all ASAP)

    I think I have a setup that will work, I just want to make sure that this will work as I don't know quite enough about building computers yet to be sure. Well here is the list:

    For a CPU I have the:
    Intel LGA 775 Pentium 4 520 2.8 GHz, 800MHz FSB, 1MB L2 Cache and Hyper Threading Technology

    For a graphics card I have the:
    ATI Radeon x700 pro 256 mb

    For a motherboard I have the:
    Abit AG8-V, Socket 775, Intel 915P Chipset w/ PCI Express x16 (ATX)

    For RAM I have:
    OCZ 1Gb PC3200 DDR Premier Dual Channel Series (2 x 512Mb)

    And to power all of this I have the:
    Vantec Stealth 520W Aluminum ATX Power Supply

    I already have the graphics card (it was a gift) so that can't be changed. The power supply is really my main concern as I don't want to spend to much on it but I don't want to ruin the computer either.

    I will probably try and order this in the next day or two so quick responses would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    It looks good to me. Never skimp on a PSU it is fuel for your system.

    Good luck and keep us posted.

    welcome to the board and that looks like it will be a pretty sweet rig for an Intel . and like tink said don't try and save money on a PSU...you'll regret it.

    Welcome to TZ.Please get a good case as previously mentioned.It makes building the system a whole lot easier.Lian Li cases are very good and they are all aluminum and have thumb screws for the cover.Good luck.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    Thanks, it's all been ordered and I can't wait. I already have a case, hard drive optical drives and all that stuff from my existing system. If anything goes wrong I'll be back here keeping you posted as I don't really know enough about installing all this to be able to troubleshoot it. Thanks for the help.
