Hi, long time lurker, first time poster here.
Anyways, i am planning to build a new PC this week (i haven't built any computers in the past 6 years), so if you guys could let me know what you think (and if everything will work together) it would be great.

Case: Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

Mobo: GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

Graphic Card: MSI R4850-512M Radeon HD 4850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Retail

Since i am getting a 22" screen i guess a 4870 would be overkill right? I don't play any FPS games, but i do play WOW, and most adventure/rpgs that come out.

Power Supply: PC Power & Cooling S75CF 750W EPS12V SLI NVIDIA SLI Certified (Dual 8800 GTX and below) CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Retail

Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 Wolfdale 3.16GHz 6MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor - Retail

RAM: G.SKILL PI Black 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

HD: Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

Monitor: Acer X223Wbd Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2500:1 - Retail

DVD: LG Black 22X (CAV) DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD+R DL 22X (CAV) DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 22X DVD±R DVD Burner - OEM

Subtotal: $1,032.86
Shipping: $40.19
Grand Total: $1,073.05

I am trying to stay in the 1k-1100 budget.
I already have Vista 64 bit and mouse/keyboard.

Any suggestions appreciated, thanks

Edit: Forgot to add, i am not planning on overclocking this system, are the stock coolers ok?

not a bad build except for different brands (personal) i would go for the same parts.

as for the stock coolers they will do just fine. personaly i always change out the stock coolers to get quiter coolers, temps also drop alittle but i really don,t care to much about that.
