    new build need some input

    I'm not new to cars or pcs but when you add the two I'm a newb.
    planning on cheap build with good performance.

    ASUS M2A-VM AM2 AMD 690G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard $64.99
    AMD X2 BE-2400 2.3GHz 45W Dual-Core Processor $99.99
    120gb laptop hdd (from dead laptop)
    2gb ram $38.99
    m3-atx psu $74.95

    will the psu be enough for this configuration?
    and I use a 20 to 24pin + molex to 4pin connector for mother board

    Please let me know what you think and if you have any better suggestions for a build at a comparable price and performance.

    PS should be OK, but why not go with the M2? The extra wattage might come in handy down the road...

    I'm leery of the M3ATX. It might work, according to the specs for it.
    If you want a known-good setup, I'd go for an M2ATX or DSATX for reliability. They're more expensive, sure. But a PSU is not a component you want to cheap out on.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    thanks for the input. I wasn't trying to skimp on the psu just liked the size but it seems its not the best choice.
