Im building a new PC and just wanted some experts to check over it to see if there's anything im missing or if there any 'known' incompatabilities etc.
here are the specs:

Corsair 1GB DDR2 XMS2-5400 TwinX (2x512MB) (MY-059-CS) 1
MSI 915P Neo2 Platinum (LGA775) Motherboard (MB-025-MS) 1
Intel Pentium 4 540 "LGA775 Prescott" 3.2GHz (800FSB) with HT Technology - Retail (CP-058-IN) 1
Lian-Li PC V1100 Black Aluminium Midi-Tower (No PSU) (CA-031-LL)  
Samsung TSH-552U 16 x 16 Dual Layer DVD±RW ReWriter (Black) - OEM (CD-019-SA)  
OcUK Value Floppy Drive - Black (HD-001-OK)  
Western Digital Caviar Special Edition 320GB 3200JD SATA 8MB Cache - OEM (HD-045-WD)  
Akasa Ultra Quiet 400W Paxpower Active PFC ATX2.0 PSU - Black Nickel (CA-012-AK)  
Western Digital Secure Connect Serial ATA Cable (CB-000-WD)  
Akasa Rounded Floppy Cable (0.45m) - Green (CB-034-GE)  

the only thing i havn't included is a graphics card.
I need one which can support up to two lcd monitors- any ideas? Of course it would have to work nicely with the motherboard- i think that means no AGP.
and i dont want to spend a fortune on it either... the most ill be doing is word processing...

Thanks experts!

    Accepted Solution

    P4 3.2GHz and 320GB HDD - for word processing?! Seems like overkill to me :)

    Also, DDR2 is slower than DDR400, while CPU FSB is 800. I would suggest to choose MB with DDR, not DDR2.

    Lian-Li PC V1100 - be sure to install both fans ant front and at end.

    Video - one of the many possible can be PNY VERTO GF6600 GT 128M PCI-E DUAL DVI.

    any geforce4 and up card with dual monitor support will support two LCD (DVI or Regular connections).  Easy to find.  Your setup looks good, and I see no problem with DDR2.
