Default Give my build a once over?

Im still very new to all this so, if someone could just give it a look over and let me know if A) it all works together and B) if there is an alternative version you would reccomend. Cause all this is costing around 850, so i wouldnt mind reducing the price. Thanks for any help you can provide me with. P.S which operating system should I use, someone said to get vista but i heards it very power hungry

CASE:
CPU
Motherboard
RAM
Video card: Im unsure as to whether i can utilize this one.
CPU Cooler:
HDD:
DVD:
PSU:
Monitor:
Keyboard and mouse:

Can you get the e3110? Its basically the same as an e8400. Your mobo natively only supports up to 800MHz ram. You have 1066 listed. You might be able to make that mobo run your ram at 1066. Yes the card will work, and the gpu you have listed is a BEAST.

Vista isnt that bad. theres been tons of benchmarks and reviews and its shown that vista doesnt really effect performance (http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...ista,1531.html)


but anyway i would go with a bigger hard drive... but other than that it looks pretty good
