Talking Building New Pc Help, Suggestions

Ok, im new to this forum but i need some help. THE MAXIMUM I could waste one this new pc is 1,700(MAXIMUM). I have decided on some of the parts below(havent bought them yet). Please tell me what I should change or any suggestions that might be of help. Also, could you please check if all parts are compatible with each other because i always get messed up with the pins and stuff.

Ok, here I go:

Case- (its OK but could you remove those things at the bottom?)http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...factory=BROWSE

Hard Drive- (YEAH 200 gigs)http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...factory=BROWSE

Ram- (1 gig enough right?)http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...factory=BROWSE

Motherboard- (THIS IS SO SICK!) http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...factory=BROWSE

PSU-(should be good) http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...factory=BROWSE

CPU-(im gonna overclock this or what?)
http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...factory=BROWSE

Video card-(YYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!)
http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...factory=BROWSE

everything else-( keyboard, mouse, monitor, drives) I already have, i am thinking of getthing an optical wireless mouse though

OK that adds up to like 1,700, any suggestions or problems please tell me
THANK YOU

Just how can you afford all of this, hmmmmmmmmmmmm...
Death in the family? or did you win the Lottery?
anywho. everything looks good, but I wouldnt get a western digital hd,
I would get a seagate, they have better warrantys and in my experiences they are more reliable. Also note. I recomend that you get a SATA hard drive, with all thos nice cmponents your IDE is gonna slow down transfer rates.
One last thing, That 600watt enermax is a little overkill, id go with an OCZ modstream 520w, it would go beter with your case, and you wont have a mess of huddled wires strewn about in your case, follow these links to see...

If you dont wanna change ur HD thats fine, but swap the PSU's you'll be much happier with OCZ modstream 520w
BTW: every WD hard drive Ive used crapped out within a year, just thought you should know.

as for the cheap PSU ive got no clue, maybe because its made by a budget case manufacturer, but If you really like that fatality board then go with intel, there seems to be more variety in intel right now then AMD even though I myself prefer AMD so when I have the money Im gonna go for a socket 939 with a SLI mobo. everything there should be compatable, just one thing if your gonna overclock that cpu dont use stock cooling, get like a thermaltake volcano or a silent Zalman or a massive heatpipe with a 80mm fan on top of it, Unless you got really good airflow in that monster case, i wouldnt recomned OCing very high with stock cooling, it is possibly, its just not that logical. having an overkill PSu isnt that bad, thats just alot of extra wires, where OCZ modstream 520 costs 50bucks less, and you only need to connect the required wires, so not as much wire hiding. BTW nice case choice, I almost got that one but I got the Soprano clear sided instead, I like it because it looks alot like me altime fav case. coolermaster wavemaster...

Correction, DONT overclock with stock. Second, go with amd and wait for the amd fatal1ty to get back in stock. they have it for amd too. You might want to downgrade a little and invest in good cooling. With a pressy, i got it up to 3.6 stable with a zalman copper HSf.

Just giving some insight, you CAN overclock with stock cooling but you
SHOULDNT.. there I said it. go with AMD if you can afford an FX they own all. Maybe invest in some watercooling, after youve gotten your parts and saved some more money.
