Default new computer. need assisstance

The current motherboard I am looking at is..
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131569
I'll be running AMD 3800+ X2 Processor
Dual Channel 2x512 Corsair Value Select
250 GB Hitachi SATA II HDD
eVGA 6800GS nVIDIA gfx
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146015 (case)

I just wanted to know if everything was compatible and if the power supply that comes with the case will be able to handle all of the hardware.

Yeah, need to do the link over again. From what I can see, it looks good. That's a good video card and nice CPU. Make sure the power supply is no lower than 350watts. 400 watts and higher would nice.

I highly recommend getting a gig stick instead of two 512 sticks. The 3800x likes to screw up in some games like BF2. Since your going to make a nice rig I would get two gigs instead of just one.

If you have the money sure, but I wouldn't go two gigs yet... a little on the high side. 1g is fine. If you play BF2 and the money, sure, go ahead. But I would wait until prices drop. His mobo is most likely dual channel, and he would need to go dual channel ram for the best performance. 2 sticks of 1gb ram each is great, but $$$. As long as the psu is 400W+ you should be fine. Nice vid. card...
