Hi I plan on buying parts and building my own PC and before I begin I wanted to make 100% sure everything will work together fine.

First off, the motherboard is a Foxconn 915A01-P-8EKRS2 Socket T LGA 775 Intel 915P ATX Intel Motherboard.

The type is a Pentium 4 Prescott/Celeron D.
The bus speed is 800/533 and has HT technology. It takes DDR2 533.

The processor is a intel Pentium 4 540J Prescott 800MHz FSB 1MB L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor. Its speed is 3.2GHz.

I've decided to try and get pqi 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM Unbuffered DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) Dual Channel Kit System Memory.

I'd like to get the Sky Hawk/Eagle Tech ATX-GM620SC ATX 12V, EPS 12V, AMD ATX-GES 620W Power Supply, with the Standby mode where you can listen to a CD/VCD/DVD without entering the operating system.l
Sounds neat, eh? Im debating whether or not I should get this PSU or something for 40 dollars less.

Im looking to get a LCD monitor, but Im kind of weary about the dead pixels. Should I just pass this up and get a CRT?

I'll be running Windows XP Professional on this.

So can you guys find any reason for this NOT to work? I can't find anything...although this is my first time actually building a full PC. I just want to be sure everything will be a go. Any suggestions to a better, yet cheaper or about the same price product..sure is welcome. :)

Thanks for the help.

I wouldnt trust that psu either, get an Antec, Enermax, Sparkle power, etc, some real brand. LCD are nice, but as long as you dont mind the weight/size of a CRT, I would stay with a nice 19" or bigger true flat CRT, by NEC or Samsung, they are much cheaper in general than a good quality LCD and last forever, no dead pixal issue either. the best thing to do if possible is go to a store and view them for yourself, then you can by on line if you wish. Monitor choice seems to be a very personall thing, only you see through your eyes....sounds pretty deep, huh. :D I do 3D CAD for a living and really seem to like a 21" CRT true flat tube the best so far, you can get a very impressive LCD but they are expensive, to the tune of an extra $100 to $500 depending on size. If your a gamer you will probably need a very good quality LCD with fast response time to avoid ghosting, and of course if you are dropping $400 on a gfx card you would kind of like to see all those mouth watering effects, after all you dont spend $1000 on a stereo and then $10 on the speakers.
