This is the first time I'm building my own computer. I've upgraded mine several times but I figure I should just start fresh :) . The computer will be used for gaming and photo editing (photoshop, 3DSM7) and I just want to make sure all these parts are compatible with each other.

Intel P4 3.4GHz

OCZ 2GB (2 x 1024mb) Ram

XFX GeForce 6800 GT

Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated!

Honestly, with minimal computer experience, and the proper parts to work with..anyone can build a computer. Just remember ESD is your enemy when building a system, a small electrical shock, even ones invisible to the eye, can damage important system parts..so be careful when handleing your components, ground yourself properly and take your time when building it, do it right. MAKE SURE YOU SET THE PROCESSOR PROPERLY, I see that happen so many times.

The only thing I would add is that newegg is a better company to buy from than tigerdirect. They also have the same board quite a bit cheaper. See this link I did not check the other parts, however I would think with a $17 dollar difference on just the board, you would end up saving some cash.

Big-E: I always take precautions when it comes to ESD (Anti-Static wristband) but thanks for the reminder.

brite750: Yeah I'm sure they do run hot but im getting a good heat sink and fan for mine. Plus the case supports four 80mm fans to keep it chill in there :) .

Thanks guys!
