    Re: n00b here my computer work?

    PSU sounds terrible. Get yourself a Corsair 450W VX. It will do the job fine.

    That case.. not to my taste. If you are new to building I would get something that is known to be easy to work with.
    With that sort of money I would get the coolermaster CM-690 or Antec Solo.

    The motherboard / CPU/ RAM bundle is OK but MSI are the budget end of things. I would rather go for a cheaper CPU such as the E5200 pentium dual core and an Asus P5Q PRO which are very easy to work and build with.

    4GB of DDR2 RAM if around £46 on www.scan.co.uk/todayonly. And mentioning scan I would use them for you all of the parts mentioned. Better prices and great customer service.

    I wouldn't bother with the sound card the motherboard will have more than adequate onboad sound.

    Storage, a Western digital 640GB Caviar Blue is awesome at around £45 on that today only page.

    Kustom PCs | 3/8" Silver Splitloom. Don't know if it's the same stuff or size, but looks similar.

    Agree with the above though. Style over function is never a good idea. With PSUs you stick to known quantities, not what looks shiniest. Still, it's your, or your dads, money.

    MSI are the manufacturer of the motherboard.

    Beware clear acrylic cases get visibly mucho dusty very quickly. Give the inside a good going over with Mr Sheen or similar to try and slow the buildup. Plus you'll have your work cut out using shower hose or similar to & re-make all your PSU connections.
    But good luck

    The PSU is pretty much the only component that can wipe out all your other components if it goes wrong, and since non-brand name PSU tend to be built very cheaply and pretty badly most enthusiast will agree that buying a PSU from one of a small number of trusted brands is absolutely critical.

    Re: n00b here my computer work?

    Have to say I would go for a standard case with a nice big window rather than pure acrylic, gives you somewhere to hide those pesky cables! It will literally take hours to sleeve all the cables in a case to make them look nice.

    Take for example my case neat and tidy it is as you look trough the window but take the other side panel off and while not a mess of biblical proportions its not exactly tidy either. Also who wants to see the casings of the DVD drives? not exactly pretty are they?


    Not the best photo but hey can't be bothered to take another one.
