Look set up and ready to do. If your a gamer the 9400 is not the bast card in the world. Other than that everything looks good. For a PSU I think 500watts will be more than enough. Don't go with a cheap one though. Always get a PSU from a well known brand, like Antec, Corsair, FSP.

awsome!

also, does anyone know anything about the parts quality you get from free geek?

I was thinking of getting my powersupply and sound card and pretty much everything else that I need besides whats on the parts list and the case there.

it is the cheapest way top do things, I guess.

also, I am gaming on the PC but my budget is so low the PNY was the only 1G card I could afford

thanks

IDK to much about Free Geek.

You won't need a sound card. There is one built into the motherboard and you may be able to save a few bucks and get the 512MB version of the 9400. It wont make much use of that extra memory.
