Default Custom Computer Build

Hey I'm building a new computer and these are the parts I've picked out and I was wondering or more like double checking if they are all compatible with you guys and maybe some opinions on different parts. My current setup costs about 800 and I would like to keep it around 800 or lower thanks P.S. This is a gaming computer

Looks alright.

Few things:

I'd go with this PSU off of TigerDirect. It has higher wattage, about 20 amps less and the same connections. Plus it's a single rail solution and has a lifetime warranty. Not to mention the goodies.

Then buy the Evga GTS 250 512MB also off of TigerDirect to get free shipping on the order.

Further, with the money you have saved from the Ultra PSU, you can buy this RAM which is quite a bit faster. And that's before timing the RAM down a bit more.

On an Intel based system, no he would not. Using AMD's HT, he will. The difference is only 8 dollars. (91 versus 98.
It's out of stock though.

I prefer to use newegg because the prices are generally lower then Tigerdirect and the shipping isnt that bad there either. I thought that the 9800 GTX+ was about the same as the GTS 250 or the 250 was barely different

They are practically the exact same card. Newer technology and architecture. As well as faster stock clocks. They both use the G92 GPU.
Better cooling for the GTS250 as well. Evga updated their fan style and cooling block.
