Alright everyone, so I'm about to order the rest of the stuff I need for my first gaming rig. Could someone please let me know if everything will work together? I really don't want to buy all of this and run into a problem.


CPU- Intel Q6600


Hard Drive- Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB

Burner- SAMSUNG Black 20X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD+R DL 20X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 20X DVD Burner with LightScribe - OEM

PSU- COOLER MASTER Real Power Pro RS-650-ACAA-A1 650W


Here's the stuff I already have:

video card- HD 4870 1gb

RAM- mushkin 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit

case- NZXT Tempest


I'm going to be running the Q6600 at stock for now, and overclock it when when I can afford to buy a better cooler.
Everything I've listed is at the exact max amount of money I can spend. If there's any way I can lower the cost (possibly the PSU?) please let me know.
Also, if you need any more details on anything let me know. Thanks in advance!

That's the problem. I can't afford to spend any more than I already have. If I could I would be going with a nice Corsair. :/

If you are gaming just get the E8500. Hardly any of the games of today utilize all of the cores so it's pointless.
