Default New Build

I am sick of my big tower. So I am going to start a new build, with a nice MicroATX case. Here are the parts I'm looking into:

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133035
Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131186
Processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115003
RAM (x2):http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227114
Video Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150230

Now I have 3 questions.
1) Dose this build look good? I'm thinking of switching the mobo but I don't have much $$.
2)Do you think I'm going to have heat problems, if I have this running almost 24/7?
3)Can you guys suggest a decent PSU and CPU cool.

Thanks in advance.

couple things. your CPU and motheboard arent nativly comptaible. you can OC the cpu to the default settings but that wouldnt be good. get a motherboard that fully supports 1066 FSB.

secondly if your going to be gaming then get a beter gfx and just use the ram you have in your other rig until you get enough money to buy more.

good PSU

if your not going to be OCing then dont bother with a new cooler. most of the good ones will be too big

Is this mobo better(I'm bad at picking mother boards):http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128054

I am not a big gamer, I just wanted an upgrade from what I already have cause I still play NFS, and FEAR.

Would that PSU fit in the MicroATX case

1. The build is good, except I don't think the mobo is compatbile, but I'm not sure...
2. I don't think you'll have any heat problems, because I have an 8600gt myself and it runs pretty cool, not hot at all. core 2's run cool, so the heat should be good.
3. A good budget PSU would be a Thermaltake PurePower. I have one, and it runs cool and quiet. Can't help you on the CPU cooler though...

pretty sure it would fit.

good motherboard though. 8 channel audio, onboard video never bad to have, gigabit LAN, C2D support is probably not common on a mATX board so you probably dont have too many options
