Question Building a computer, will these parts work?


Hey all, i am building a new computer, and these are the specs that will be included. I want to install SuSE (or slackware) Linux.


DVD-RW - Pioneer DVR-A07 8X DVD+/-RW
CPU - Athlon XP 3000+ (Barton) w/ 512K L2 cache
Hard drive - Western Digital 250GB w/ 8MB cache
RAM - 2x 512MB PC-3200 DDR400
Motherboard - ABIT KV8-MAX3 VIA K8T800
Sound card - Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2
Video card - MSI GeForce FX5900XT-VTD128 VIVO 128MB DDR
LCD Screen - Samsung SyncMaster 173S 17" (Black)

I know they should work, but i am spending a lot of money and i want to make sure they will run flawlessly.

Thanks for your help!

Sure, why not! I never check whether things will work with a build I do. So long as the pieces parts are fairly standard. Such as just about any NVidia card for video, and just about any Sound Blaster card for sound, etc. It's always worked for me. You should be fine.

Once again, same things I mentioned before. Look for your commonly available cards, linksys usually works.
