I've been wanting to be build my own computer for quite some time. However, money has been an issue that has held me back. I have trouble justifying the build since I have a laptop and desktop that work perfectly fine. I've come to the decision that my first build will be relatively inexpensive. I've created a parts list and I'm pretty sure all the parts are compatible and would make for a pretty well built inexpensive computer... I'm going to post my list with links to newegg for each item. Let me know if these parts will work well together. Also, will built-in video card on the mobo be decent to avoid needing something better?

I've also heard that the phenom II dual core BE's have an extra two cores that are unlockable with certain mobo's. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the one one I selected should be capable of this. I know there is a possibility it won't work but thought it'd be worth a try. TIA for any help.
