Default Desktop Build

I am getting ready to build my first Desktop! Anyways, I was wonderingb what you all thought of this -
Biostar Mobo
AMD Pehnom 9600
(2) Kingston Ram
WD hard Drive 160 Gb

Only thing I am not sure of is the Mobo. ANy other suggestions? Or Am i good to go? Im not much of a gamer so I dont really need a video card. Onboard will be fine for me

Biostar is fine. Since it's not a gaming build it'll be just fine. And if you do get into gaming, you could always add a graphics card later on.

+1 for the Phenom 9600, that's an absolutely amazing price. But go with a 780G board instead, they're the same price but overall much better: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131324

Please take this advice. nVidia chipsets are horrible for OC'ing and so are the SB600.
