Default Please Review My Newegg Parts List

I am planning on building a high performance computer for a wide variety of tasks such as internet marketing all the way to casual gaming and video editing. I just put together this list of parts from newegg. Should I have any problems with the parts I've chosen or should I be okay to order them?

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Processor N82E16819103727 $134.99

GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H Motherboard (24 pin) N82E16813128435 $134.99

COOLER MASTER Centurion 5 CAC-T05-UB Case N82E16811119047 $49.99

Antec EarthWatts EA-500D Green 500W Power Supply N82E16817371035 $69.99

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB RAM (8GB) N82E16820231311 $52.99

Western Digital RE4 WD5003ABYX Hard Drive (500GB) N82E16822136697 $74.99

HIS H467QR1GH Video Card (1GB) N82E16814161315 $69.99

SAMSUNG CD/DVD Burner DVD Burner (No Cable) N82E16827151233 $20.99

BYTECC 18" Serial ATA-150/300 SATA Cable N82E16812270093 $3.49

TOTAL $612.41

What I'm looking for here is a performance PC on a budget that can be expanded as I like and as needed. Also, I am an avid Ubuntu/Linux monkey and would like to know if I would be able to run Ubuntu on this setup. By the way, this will be my first computer build project. I don't really need a dedicated sound card.

Looks like it will work just fine. Not much money, either.

And yes, it will run linux prefect fine.

Looks fine to me. the video card is a bit low powered to be considered "performance" but if you aren't heavy gamer, it'll be fine.

Good choices.

Looks good with one exception, If you want a little more future proofing, I would go with this board: Newegg.ca - GIGABYTE GA-990XA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard, I have that same video card and I love it for video editing and casual gaming. It overclocks well also!
