Default Is My System All Compatible?

Hey,

I'm a first time PC builder and I'd just like you guys to make sure the system is compatible. I will be running Windows 7 32 bit Home edition. I would also appreciate it if anyone could recommend a Wattage of PSU I would need and possibly a specific brand if possible. I will be adding some cooling fans at a later date so I'd like the PSU to be able to cater for me when I add fans, a sound card etc.

Processor
Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 2.93GHz Socket 775 1066FSB 3MB L2 Cache Retail Boxed Processor

Motherboard
ASUS P5N-D nForce 750i SLI Socket 775 8 channel audio ATX Motherboard

Memory (RAM)
OCZ 4GB Kit (2x2GB) 800MHz/PC2-6400 Memory Platinum Performance CL5 (5-4-4-18)

Video Card
Asus HD 5750 Formula 1GB GDDR5 VGA DVI HDMI Out PCI-E Graphics Card

Hard Drive
Samsung HD103SJ Spinpoint F3 1TB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 32MB Cache - OEM

Blu Ray/ DVD and CD
Samsung SH-B083L 8x BD-ROM with DVD±RW DL & RAM SATA Blu-Ray Drive - OEM Black

Case
Antec 900 Nine Hundred - Gaming Case with 200mm Top Fan - No PSU

That's all of the parts. Help with the compatibility and the PSU will be much appreciated. Thanks.

Everything will work together.

You will need 600-700W to power that.

Here is a nice PSU that will power everything you have already listed and will still have a lot of power left:

The Antec 900 is a very small case, but everything should fit nicely.

If I were you, I'd wait a bit for a drop in prices on the i7 quads and would go for a quad-core build, but if you so desire, the build you listed will work.

Here's a power supply that would suite your needs, and it's on sale from a reputable brand.

Edit: Thelis beat me to it...

It has been suggested by someone else that I use Socket 1156 core i3 instead. Is this a good move?

The supply you suggested is fine, but if you consider the mail in rebate on the one I suggested you get much more bang for your buck.

My suggestion $89.99 after MIR:

Code:
Model 
Brand CORSAIR 
Model CMPSU-750TX 
Spec 
Type ATX12V / EPS12V 
Maximum Power 750W 
Fans Thermally controlled 140mm fan 
PFC Active 
Main Connector 20+4Pin 
+12V Rails Single 
PCI-Express Connector 4 x 6+2-Pin 
SATA Power Connector 8 
SLI Ready 
CrossFire Ready 
Efficiency > 80%
Your suggestion $79.99:

Code:
Brand Antec 
Model NEO ECO 620C 
Spec 
Type ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 
Maximum Power 620W Continuous Power 
Fans 120mm Double ball bearing fan 
PFC Active 
Main Connector 20+4Pin 
+12V Rails Single 
PCI-Express Connector 1 x 6-Pin, 1 x 6+2-Pin 
SATA Power Connector 6 
Efficiency > 80%

Honestly i would get a core i5 or i7. AMD also makes high end Quad Cores for around 200. Personally i would switch to AMD and get a better GPU/CPU/RAM for the same if not a little bit more. You'll get WAY more performance for your money. The Core 2 Duo along with the ddr2 are getting a bit aged.

I was going to recommend a Phenom II X4 955 with a mobo.

So this? AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Socket AM3 3.2 GHz 8MB L3 Cache Retail Boxed Processor What motherboard would be good with that? Seems sort of in my price range.

I came across this which seems a good motherboard. Asus M4A785TD-V EVO 785G Socket AM3 onboard DVI VGA HDMI 8 channel audio ATX Motherboard
