Default I need help

I started for the first time collecting hardware to make my own pc. At this moment I found already a lot but I am interested because it's my first time if everthing is good and will work good.

This is what I found already

ni8 sli
2 times nforce4 sli x16
3 times Seagate 250GB SATA
4 times 512Mb 533Hz
intel pentium d 830 3.0 Ghz
Logitech G15 Gaming
logitech mx 510 performance

I am searching for a good psu but I don't know witch to go with.

Because I have the SUNBEAM ACRYL CASE I search a psu with connectors on the case of the psu, so I can make my own cables to connect.

So My question is "simple" : witch psu Should I choose and is the rest of the configuration alright?

nforce 4 SLI is a chipset which has 2 PCIe x16 slots where you can put geforce cards in.

Example of a geforce card is a 6800GT or 7800GTX.

psu : OCZ 600watt. and never look back.


if you want to use an sli setup, make your cpu worthwhile, this kind of shitty cpu can't hold up with dual vidcards... getting one 7800 gtx or two won't make any difference in a cpu-bound rig....
at least get an a64 or X2 with over 2.4ghz, that should trash that 3.0 ghz intel. and why the hell three 250 gb sata's???
get one raptor 74 for OS and one 400 gb seagate as backup, you'll have enough space and more speed in everyday work
