Well...I need to know if the motherboard is compatible with the case. I know itll fit, but will all the hookups work. Then, if you can, could someone say if this is all compatible, as in, will it work when I hook it all up? I think it is...but im paranoid and spending alot of money to find out something won't work kinda sucks.

The case is the Antec 900

I am also getting heat sinks with the ram, but, am I forgetting anything or is anything incompatible? I know I don't have the hard drive or dvd drive listed, partly cause I don't know where/if they have them. The dvd drive is new, but the hard drive is IDE...for now. I have to save more then Ill put in a SATA drive in a few months. Thanks for any information

Standard ATX case and Standard ATX mobo. no problems.

Although I've heard bad things about the NVidia 5xx series mobos. apparently the 6xx series are a lot better, and the 650i based boards arnt that expensive

Someone's gotta say it... why on earth would you only be getting 1GB of RAM on a system in 2007? That's nuts man!

More than enough case for your setup - A lot more. You will have years of room to add-on and upgrade. Choose any number and quality of drives that will fit your budget.... and when you can or wish to build your next generation, this case will still be good to go.

Well...If you would front another 120$ id get 2 gigs. But, Im maxed out for now. Ill be getting 4 gigs in the next year, but, this is what I can afford. And its not like I would wait...but...this computer is on its last leg. I am having so much problems with it, ill be suprised if it lasts another month. Every possible thing has happened...and I replaced things...just threw away money on it. So...needless to say, ill be upgrading later, but for now, this is all I can afford.

If you've managed to save up that much, you can save a little more for the extra GB without much hassle. I'm assuming you're a gamer since you've got a 7900 card listed... and if that's the case, you really do need 2 GB. Who knows... the memory might carry over to your next system if you don't hang on to this one too long.

Yeah I could...but...The only problem I have is this computer. I need a computer cause thats I know where to work and such. But...I don't know how long itll last. My computer has gone rogue.
