So I was wondering, will these parts be compatible with each other, do you guys recommend something else ( something that is not more expensive than these parts)

Oh, and I do NOT intend to overclock!

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-M52L-S3, nVIDIA nFORCE 520LE, AM2/ AM2+, 4xDual channel DDR2 800

CPU: PhenomII X4 940

Video: ZOTAC GeForce GTX 260 Synergy Edition

RAM: PATRIOT Signature PSD22G8002H DDR2 (240) 2GB PC6400 800MHz CL5 RADIATOR
( I'll put another 2gb ram later)

HDD: 500 GB SEAGATE, 7200RPM, SATAII, 32MB/ NCQ, BARRACUDA 7200.11

Power supply: SEASONIC SS-500ET, 500W, 12CM FAN, ACTIVE PFC, 80PLUS

Looks OK, but I would really try and get 4gbs of RAM. What OS are you using? If Vista, I would definitely get 4gbs.
I've never heard/seen that case before. Try getting a brand name, like Cooler Master. Something along the lines of this>http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
(I know it's newegg, but it's just for the product page).
Good luck

Your local case looks fine as far as size is concerned.

You may want a 750a chipset motherboard.
That motherboard you quoted is kind of old.

Something like this, if it is not too expensive for you:

Placa de baza ASUS M3N72-D, nVIDIA nForce 750a SLI, AM2/ AM2+, 4xDual channel DDR2 1066(OC), VGA GeForce 8 Series GPU, 2xPCIEXP16x, 2xPCIEXP1x, Hybrid SLI, 8CH, Gigabit LAN, 2xIEEE1394, HDMI, SATAII, RAID 0,1,0+1,5,JBOD, ATA133, 2000/ 5200 MTs, ATX

You might want to avoid the MBs with the integrated graphics since you won't be using it...you can get other solutions cheaper

Not if he wants to SLI, which isnt a great idea on AMD boards because the SLI chipsets were reported to have numerous issues.

Where are you planning to buy from and what resolution are you going to be playing at? Unless you are going to go for an i7 and want to do a dual card setup in the future you should seriously consider an ATI card.

indeed, I do not want any SLI... I'm going to buy it from a local shop ( the one in the previous posts) at first I will be playing on a 19" CRT, but I will probably buy a 22" lcd
