Specs: Windows 7, Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E6750/2GB RAM
Hey everyone.

So i'm planning on building my own system and i have all the bits picked out, now i just need someone to tell me it'll all work together before i go out and buy it all. Here's it is:

Asus P5G41T-M LX Motherboard

Alpine 500W PSU

2x1 GB PC10600 / DDR3 1333Mhz RAM

20x Dual Layer DVD+-R / RW

Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor E6750
(4M Cache, 2.66 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB) CPU

Western Digital 500GB 3.5" SATA2 32MB 7200 Hard Drive

And Windows 7 Ulitimate

The rest being fans i already have and i'm not considering a graphics card yet.

So as i'm new to this, there may be so problems. Thanks guys :)

Also, let me know if i've missed anything.

The system u are planning to build is old, sandy bridge chips are cheap better get one.

I'm on a very low budget so for me, it's good enough. I'm not planning to do anything major on this pc either. Just want to know if it will run :)

Computer hardware get's "old" very quickly & as kuwese pointed out, you're going to be building an "old" system. If you insist on sticking with the outdated socket 775 platform, here's a few things that you can improve on:

- get a decent power supply. The Alpine 500W is cheap garbage. This is NOT the place to cut corners.
- get more RAM. 2GB isn't nearly enough these days.
- get a decent PCI-express video card. The integrated Intel GMA X4500 is weak, plus it will be using system RAM. And with just 2GB, you don't have the RAM to spare.

You need to re-think this build or you're going to be disappointed with the results. If money is the issue, build an AMD system.

Don't bother with Win7 Ultimate (what does it have that you are liable to need?) and put the money you save to buy a better PSU.

Bad thing is, i've already got the Asus board and i can't return it. Guess i'm sticking in 775. That doesn't bother me anyway.

I've considered this PSU now, what do you think?
ACE 750W

And i will upgrade the RAM once built, as well as the video card.

Once i've got it up and running i'll then upgrade. What do you think of the new PSU?

ACE 750W
Isn't a good PSU and u don't need 750 watts.
I posted good quality PSU(rensponse # 4)

Also, the case i have has the psu slot at the top of the case, this psu looks like it sits at the bottom. Could i turn it upside down and still use it that way?

A good psu has a single 12 volt rail, like the Corsair line that Kuwese listed in response # 4. If the psu mounts at the top of the case, it will be fine. They all mount the same. It's where in the case it mounts that makes a difference.
