Default opinions on my computer build

Got some parts put together, want to get some feed back on what you guys think and if they will even work.

Case:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119138
(is this case going to be enough to keep this system cool? I plan on doing some OC, not extreme but with the i7 how can you NOT oc?)

Mobo:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128375

Graphics Card:

Power Supply:

Processor:

Ram:

Hard Drive:

Burner:

and windows OS, Whatever is the cheapest 64bit version, since 7 is coming out soon anyway.

I was hoping to order it up by the end of the week so please let me know if something won't work.

You need a better HSF to oc


Also DO NOT GET A COSMOS

i would recommend a Antec 1200 or a Stacker

you are talking about the heat sink for the CPU right? I could not find one on new egg?
how do I know if a heat sink is compatible with the i7?

I probably should have put this in my first post but this is going to be my first build. I'm a little new at this so please forgive me if I need you to use small words

look for the socket type of the i7... then go on newegg and look for heatsinks that are compatible with that socket type

The Core i7 you selected includes a heatsink that will work just fine.

If you ever plan on overclocking down the road, a better HSF will be required as suggested by Holysky. You'll need a heatsink that is compatible with socket type LGA 1366.

with the high quality parts in your build I would suggest a more reputable psu company, Rosewill's are decent for low to mid range builds, but you want a top notch psu to power the rig you're getting...

I'd suggest this psu, CORSAIR CMPSU-850TX 850W, it's surprisingly cheap for a quality psu, just ask techmaster05 what he thinks, oh wait, just click on the link and read his review on teh 'egg...



this Antec Signature SG850 850W is my dream psu, it's expensive, but it's also one of the top psus in it's class, if not the top psu, just read some reviews, and no I don't mean Newegg reviews, I mean jonnyguru and [H]ard|OCP type reviews done by professionals...
