Is this a good build?


Feb 14, 2009
Alright so my budget is $320 exactly, give or take a dollar, lol. I have this build so far from newegg and I like it.

Processor +HSF: amd athlon 64 x2 dual core 5000+

MotherBoard: jetway motherboard.

VideoCard: ATI radeon 4830 512mb GDDR3 575 mhz core 1.8 ghz memory 256-bit

RAM: OCZ 2x1gb 800 mhz

HardDrive: 320GB Western digital 8mb

CASE: Raidmax tornado

PowerSupply: logysis 575 watt sli ready 25 amp (I know sucky but I already bought it)

SATA cable: okgear 18"

Also will the PowerSupply power my videocard? Thanks.

I KNOW THIS IS A SUCKY BUILD! but it's all I got and it's better then my p4 1.8 ghz with onboard video.

Total comes to $315 including shipping.

I never used a Jetway mobo, cause honestly it scares me. For a few $$ more you can get a Gigabyte mobo.

As for the video card, from ATI's site:

ATI Radeon™ HD 4830 System Requirements

* PCI Express® based PC is required with one X16 lane graphics slot available on the motherboard
* 450 Watt or greater power supply with 75 Watt 6-pin PCI Express® power connector recommended (550 Watt and two 6-pin connectors for ATI CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode)
* Certified power supplies are recommended for ATI CrossFireX™ technology support. Refer to for a list of Certified products
* Minimum 1GB of system memory
* Installation software requires CD-ROM drive
* DVD playback requires DVD drive
* Blu-ray™ playback requires Blu-ray drive
* For a complete ATI CrossFireX™ system, a second ATI Radeon™ HD 4830 graphics card, an ATI CrossFireX Ready motherboard and one ATI CrossFireX Bridge Interconnect cable per graphics card (included) are required

You will basically be maxing out that PSU. I think it will work, I know most people wouldn't use it but yeah, you are not going to be able to do crossfire or load up on devices.

I think it will "work" though.
