Default New build, what do you think?

I am building my first computer soon. This is what i've put together. Now I don't know that much about hardware, so I just want to make sure these parts are compatible. I really just want a PC with high multitasking abilities that won't slow down if im running a lot of processes. I don't do any gaming but I want a PC with the same performance as a gaming PC.

Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.66GHz LGA 775 Processor

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS (Perpendicular Recording Technology) 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UW Black Aluminum Bezel , SECC Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

LITE-ON 20X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe Black SATA Model LH-20A1L-06


NEC Display Solutions ASLCD72VXM-BK Black 17" 5ms DVI LCD Monitor


SeaSonic SS-500ES ATX12V 500W Power Supply - OEM

CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X2048-6400C4DHX

ASUS P5K-VM LGA 775 Intel G33 uATX Intel Motherboard

Is this a good lost?

Motherboards is where I fall by the way side when it comes to help, as so many different versions are out there, finding the right one for you can be dreadfully hard.

The CPU is nice though, and is a dual core so you'll effectively be able to multi-task quite a bit.

Have you by any chance looked at the Quad Core Q6600 G0 stepping CPU?
This will offer even more in the way of multi-tasking and will also make sure your computer stays up to date for quite a while, and you won't need more performance than this for now

Hmm... I'm not sure on american prices, but can you get a larger monitor for around the same price? I can't help after buying a 20 inch widescreen for myself, how small the 17 inch next to this one looks. Its up to you however, and it does support DVI which is good.

The hard drive should be okay, but if you look at the cons on the side, two failed looking at the reviews not long after buying one.
Perpendicular technology though is pretty good, and should allow for faster speeds, since more data is packed into a smaller space.

Everything else looks fine by me.

Is the Quad Core G0 Q6600 compatible with the rest of my chosen hardware?

Oh yeah, perfectly compatable:

PU Socket Type: LGA 775
CPU Type: Quad-core / Core 2 Extreme / Core 2 Duo / Pentium
FSB: 1333/1066MHz

Is there any reason why you chose that specific motherboard? Just wondering.
