At the moment I am looking to buy components for and build a new computer. It is the first time I have done this and I have collected a list of components but I'm not sure of their compatibility. If anyone could help I would be extremely grateful. The components are:
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Socket AM2 2.5GHz
GIGABYTE Ga-m57sli-s4 Am2 Nvnf570 Atx
Kingston HyperX 2GB (2x1GB) DDR2 PC2-6400C5
Sapphire ATI Radeon X1650 Pro 256MB GDDR3 Dual DVI-I TVO PCI-E Graphics Card
Seagate 7200.10 320GB SATAII/300 8.5ms 7200RPM 16MB Cache
Optiarc NEC AD7170S Serial ATA 18x18 DVD±RW Dual Layer ReWriter (Black)

Thanks if you can help :thumbsup:

No PSU?

Personally I would go with Crucial for RAM, I've had problems with Kingston but not Crucial...I am biased.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I was considering Crucial when it was on a special (Overclockers UK) but now it has returned to full price which is too much for a mid-priced PC. The PSU I chose is the "Arctic Power 500W PSU With PCI-E, SATA, 20+4, ATX12V, 8pin +12V Connectors," but I am more concerned if there are any compatibility issues with RAM, mobo, processor etc?

Kingston does not list any HyperX RAM as being compatible with your machine. Linky.

You don't need a 500W PSU for that. A high-quality 300W is enough.

I've now decided to go with a 380W coolermaster PSU. Could anyone recommend some compatible RAM, preferably 2GB DDRII 6400? Thanks for the PSU advice Mr Alpha :thumbsup:
