    Okay. Advice on PC Parts


    Hi,

    I haven't build a computer in a long time, and I'm needing a new linux test pc.

    Can any of you help me see if this will work?

    These are the parts I will be likely to get:

    29002 : AMD ATHLON XP1700+ 266MHz FSB - Thoroughbred - OEM : 31.00
    34834 : Coolermaster DP5-6J31C Fan AMD Approved Upto XP & MP 2100 : 4.43
    51052 : Shuttle Xpc SK41G Amd Socket A Aluminium Barebones System : 144.52
    42141 : Crucial PC2100 128mb DDR 184pin DIMM : 16.99
    49301 : Maxtor Fireball 3 30gb ATA133 5400rpm - OEM : 32.48

    from Ebuyer.co.uk

    Thanks,
    computer

    Looks good to me. I haven't built a barebones system, but you have all the needed parts there (assuming you have a monitor and keyboard already )

    Get a 7200 rpm harddrive, and I would go with Western Digital over Maxtor. Better reliability, but if it's only a test system you would be ok. You might also consider a little more RAM.
