Default PC build

i just created a wishlist at Newegg.com on what i hope to get for my new pc that i plan on building soon. i am posting this here because i was wondering if everything is compatible with each other. if anyone has any recommendations as to what i have or dont have please let me know

Case: http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16811156112
Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813131541

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16819103546

HDD: http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16822148065

CD/DVD: Not sure yet, any suggestions would be great. i want something that can burn cd's and dvd's

Also say i was to get this: http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16827152048
does that act only as a cd/dvd burner or can u also play things like dvds and games on it.
I am aware that the mobo listed is agp and not pci-e, i picked agp b/c my vid card is agp and i'm not sure if they make pci-e and agp mobos. i also already have a psu and 1g of Corsair ram
thanks

You my friend, have one KICK ASS PROCESSOR 4400, dual core. holllly crap.
and you have a nice case. You need a motherboard. I am not sure if this motherboard is entirely compatible or if any of the slots are right but all i know is u need an AMD antlon 64x2 compatible motherboard. I chose this one as an example but you can get a better one.

EDIT: Get 1gb or more of system memory (RAM) It will work great. Corsair is the best brand for that. Also, about your hard drive. I would suggesst change it. change it to a maxtor or a western digital. they seem to be the best brands

IMO fork up the extra money for this:

Great board.

I don't see why you need such a slim DVD drive. Get a normal NEC-3540a or whatever the newest model is.

A 6800 vanilla? If you want to play the latest games, a 6800 vanilla just isn't going to cut it.

THat has both AGP and PCI-E; the only problem is that it doesn't overclock well.

And yes to your DVD drive question.
