Default Building a New Gaming Computer

Hi guys
i am thinking about buying a new gaming computer and was wondering what you guys think of these parts and if they are all compatible.

Nvidia Geforce 8600GTS 256mb
Intel Core 2 Duo E6420 or E6600
Intel P965
Seagate 500gb Hard Drive
2gb of ram(not sure what type,any suggestions are welcome)


Thats what i have in mind at the moment and was wondering what you guys thought and if they are all compatible.
Any suggestions and comments are welcome.


Thanks
Marzy

looks good.
For ram I'd suggest ocz, mushkin, corsair or kingston, though there are other good brands too. The only one I have personal experience with is kingston, and I've been very happy with their products.

i just built my comp and used 2gb of crucial ballistix it is amazing in my opinion it is the best (i got the 80$ 2GB kit and overclocked it to 800mhz the timings on it cant be beat either)

i also built my system with an E6420 and its the way to go if your on a budget considering you can overclock it to just as fast or even faster then an E6600 very easily.

if you going to buy 2 gig ram its better to get 2x1gig ram. 2 individual ram sticks work better than 1.
