Hello

Im about to build my first computer and I have a few final questions

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: (1-2 weeks) BUDGET RANGE: (200-250$) After Rebates

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, surfing the internet, watching movies

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS, i5 750
mobo GIGABYTE GA-P55M-UD2
case: NZXT M59
PSU: OCZ Fatal1ty OCZ550FTY 550W ATX12V
RAM: OCZ Gold 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
HDD: two Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA
OD: Lite-on 24X DVD+R 24X DVD-R SATA Black 24X DVD Writer LightScribe Support
Monitor is a 21.5'' 1920x1080, case came with two 120mm fans and I bought another for the spot that blows onto HDDs

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com, ncixus.com, amazon.com COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: (usa)

PARTS PREFERENCES: This is probably going to be the graphics card XFX HD-487A-ZWFC Radeon HD 4870 1GB

OVERCLOCKING: probably SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: First of all, does anyone see any compatibility problems with those parts?
Do I need a speaker for boot up, like this: Internal PC Mini Speaker
Any recommendations for a good heatsink for the cpu? I might overclock the processor, probably not past 3.0 ghz, more like 2.8ghz because of foxconn circuit and I’d like to have this comp for a couple years
Should I get another 120 or 140mm fan for the top of the case? It will only take one in the back slot on the top if I put the OD in the top slot.
What slots should I put the HDDs in? should they be spaced far apart? I might add another in the future.

Thank you in advance

That was the one I was looking at. Im just wondering whether it will fit in that case and on that mobo fine.
