Hi. I'm building a new computer, because the one I'm using is very outdated. (Duron 800mhz, Voodoo4 etc.) I just want to know if all these parts are compatible, and everything will work well. I'll mostly be using this computer for gaming. I don't need what will make everything run at full settings, I just want parts that will run the game, but will also be within my $1000 (CND) budget. All prices here are in CND. Thank you.
New computer
I just want to be sure everything will work, and I'm not getting ripped off on anything. Most of these prices were fetched from www.newegg.com, then I converted to CND.

Looks OK to me, MSI is not one of my fav mobos, but that's only my opinion, after having a good run with Asus.

I'm gonna sound like an old record soon, but make sure you keep that WD HDD COOL.

The prices look OK to me, but being in Australia, I'll leave the final say on this to one of the Canadian or American members.

Just a note about Newegg...They do not ship to Canada.
The next best place is TigerDirect in Canada.

Good-Luck.

I was told the MSI is very good. It was either that, or a DFI, but the MSI is more novice friendly, and this will be my first built computer. I plan on getting a fan too. I know they don't ship to Canada, but I'm just using it for prices. I know a place in the city where I can haggle pretty well, so I'm just using that as a goal for the prices for everything. I'll be sure to check out TigerDirect. Thanks guys.

I have had really bad luck with MSI boards and FCI. I use Asus , Abit or Gigabyte almost exclusively now and have yet to have a problem with any of those. since I offer a two year warranty on my builds ,reliability is my biggest concern.
I plan to live forever , so far , plan is working.

I have a similar MB in my new pc I built(socket 939). MSI has worked very well so do not worry about it. The Computer looks nice! I got a AMD 64 3200 at 2000fsb and it goes!
I hope you will enjoy your new pc!
