I have decided to go ahead and put together my own computer. Since its cheaper than buying a new one in the store. I have picked out the parts I need but I want to be sure they will work okay together. So if anyone can let me know if these are compatible it will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Mickey Knox

Welcome to the forums MickeyKnox

This sounds ok to me, Don't forget the floppy drive and a modem if your using dialup.

Just make sure the number of pins on your processor amd motherboard match! It will be much sadness if they don't :cry:

It looks like the celeron processor will not work on that motherboard. The chipset on that motherboard is the Intel I845 and socket 478 and that only supports the P4 processor. If you want to use that celeron processor you need to get a motherboard with a socket 370.

HERE is Gigabyte's website that lists their socket 370 motherboards. I suggest a motherboard with the Intel I815 chipset.

Yes that is a very stable chipset. I thik it will actually support PC133 memory as well as some Socket 370 PIII's. Go for it!

I would get a geforce without the "MX". MX is the "lite" version.

And guys- instead of steering him toward a soc370 mobo; KEEP THE 478 BOARD AND BLOW THE $264.00 on a 2.2GHZ P4.

BUT WAIT- THERE'S MORE! spend an extra 20 bucks or so on a mobo that supportd DDR.
