I'm a begginer wanting to build my own system for gaming etc... below is a list of componants I have picked out. Before I go out and buy any of them I would like to know if they will be compatible with eachother, also I'm not to sure on what operating system and motherboard to get. I also want to know if the end product will stay quiet and have enough ventilation. I also want it to be 64 bit HD (assuming it's the best for gaming?)

hello,
first off, well were to start. unless you are entirely set on that case, get this combo deal:

dont get a sound card, and get this monitor instead, it is better and cheaper.

you really, really, really dont need that keyboard and mouse, (you will still get a way too good mouse and keyboard!)

You probably want to buy a PSU from a reliable company (Corsair/Antec). 1000w is overkill for that system

Thanks ever so much, fast reply and very very helpful. What hard drive and dvd burner would you recommend as it seems to be the only things missing now.

I would personally recommend these hdds depending on how much space you need:

Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Western Digital RE3 WD1002FBYS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

i love western digital, and those two are great drives. i have the 640 GB version but it is sold out right now.

oo and also any dvd drive will do but get this one:

PLEXTOR Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 24X DVD/CD Writer LightScribe Support - OEM

:love:  Will I need to add anymore fans/coolers or is that everything I need in the above posts?
December 17, 2009 10:53:32 PM

well stock fans come with the cpu, and they are ment to handle the cpu, and not much more. the case is so cooled you can freeze things in it, but if you plan on having a quieter, cooler machine that you can overclock, then you want a new cooler. if there will be no oc'ing then no extra cooler is needed :)
