Default Custom PC (please look)

Hi I have been doing a lot of research over the past few weeks into building my own custom PC. The parts I have decided on are as follows...

Motherboard
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=82818

Case (+500W power supply)
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=72993

Hard drive
http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=43152

RAM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145440

Processor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103501

Graphics card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130214

Can I get some comments as to whether this is a decent machine all-together? And also are all the parts compatible with one another? Would anyone change any of the parts on the list for ones of similar price?

Thanks

yeah, it's a pretty decent machine, the only change I'd make is the processor, I would get the venice core instead of the winchester. other than that, it's gonna be pretty nice.....good luck with your build

holy crap that case is cheap. yup looks good except the cpu isnt a venice core. not really a big deal though. i'd look into the "NEO 4 PLATINUM SLI" mobo by MSI. its very nice

For the little bit more ...the venice core for the proccessor
Be a good build for you.
Hope you realize that newegg doesn't do canada or across the pond either.

This doesn't have anything to do with the computer, but do you like Senses Fail?

Yeah you have almost identical specs to me there. You want to get the venice core becasue they have almost identical prices and the venice is better...

yeh ive noticed pretty much everyone has around the same specs as that. hopefully it will play cs:s and hl2 pretty well. im glad ive finally narrowed down the list to those parts, because i was so confused to begin with - specially with the motherboards.

Perhaps you want to look into getting the Corsair XMS RAM because it has the heatspreader and better performance than the Value.
