  1. The phenom II 955/965 are fine CPUs and will be good for several years.

    As long as they are AM3 (not AM2+/3) motherboards and use DDR3 RAM they should be fine.

    You really want 4GB RAM (2x2kit) and windows 7 64bit.

    Case - look at Antec 200, 300, 900, 902, 1200 and Coolermaster Storm Scount, CM 690, HAF 922, HAF 932. I have no idea if you are looking for big or small, portable or not. All if the cases I listed have good airflow.

    You dont have a graphics card listed. Without a graphics card you cant figure out what power supply you need.
  2. ya but i think that the onboard graphics would suffice for my needs, so didn'y mention it!
    and the cabinet is not meant to be portable, i mean it can be big enough on the fact that it should have proper cooling solutions.

    thanks for reply...
  3. I really like to suggest the HAF 922 as the case, but the Antec 900 is also really good.

    PSU: Stick with Corsair, Antec Earthwatts and OCZ. Without a discrete card, you'll need at most 450W.

    GPU: I would want to at least stick in a small card, but that could come later if you decide onboard doesn't give you enough. If you want to leave the option open, get a 550W PSU.
