HI guys,


My old Amd sempron and board have been revived too many times, cpu has a broken pin, iffy ram, and keeps blowing up my graphics cards. Want to build a budget box, would appreciate your imput.


Could you check over this and let me know if they will all work together ok, can up grade it over time when ive got the need and cash. Just want to know if ive missed anything as really my budget maxed out give or take $100.00, and will be my first build.


Intel I3 540 dual core 3.06mhz – CPU(intergrated graphics card)

Asus P7H55-M Pro – (Should fit in  my old case)(uP to 16 gig ram)

Seagate 7706.12 Sata 2 3Gs – 1TB – Hard Drive

Kingston Value DR3 1333 2+2gig Ram

Artic Cooling Alpine 2 Pro – Cpu Cooler

LG Gh2l550 22x DVD/rewriter


Will cost just below my budget of $700.00


Got a couple of graphics card unsure if they still work, 500w PSU, monitor and a case.


Cheers Basher
