Hi im John im new at the forums and im resuing my old machine to make a gaming rig

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Until january 10
BUDGET RANGE: 530€ but i don´t want to change the config´too much just to see if all fits together well

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT:
composing in fruity loops , working the photoshop , word ,etc.. , surfing the net , heavy gaming


PARTS NOT REQUIRED:
Drive- Write master x22 drive
HDD- Hitachi Sata II 7200 RPM Sata II
Case- Sucky case with one single 80 mm fan and an air exit( i don´t know the model)
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Im from Portugal so i shop at pixmania

PARTS USED:
CPU- AMD Phenom II 965 BE 3.4 GHZ 140 €
Rams- OCZ Pc memory Obsidian Ultra-Low Voltage 2 x 2 GB DDR3-1600 PC3-12800 90€
GPU - Ati radeon Hd 4890 140 €
PSU- OCZ StealthXStream 600 W 66 €
Motherboard- ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO - Socket AM3 - Chipset 785G - ATX 80 €


OVERCLOCKING: Only 200~400 mhz in each memory
I can´t crossfire with this mobo so no...

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1280x1024


QUESTIONS:
1- Is the system compatible?
2- Will the Psu hold up with such a demanding system , will i have performance problems of some sort?
3- Do i need to worry about the temps of this sytem?Since my case will do a lousy joob keeping it cool ... How well do the stock collers of the CPU and GPU( of course) hold up?


ADDTIONAL NOTES:
The memories are configured for intel processor so that won´t be a smart choice maybe , i have to find ones fitting to my cpu..

1.yes this system is compatible
2. the psu will hold up very nicely, but a little added wattage couldn't hurt, so it will work, but you could get a slighly bigger one.
3.you might want to buy a extra 120mm fan, but stock should work fine.

I will chage the rams to OCZ PC3-12800 Black Edition Ready CL8 Dual Channel , for an additional 10 euros i get lower frequency rams that are especificly built for my CPU
Somedays after purchasing the computer i will buy an additional 120 mm fan as you have recommended
