Hey guys. After a bit of research I decided on the following components for my new pc. ANY critique is welcome, and please let me know if something is not really compatible with the motherboard or whatever.

Intel i5-750
Asus P7P55d-e pro
Coolermaster mystique case
4gb ddr3 ram (don't really know which to choose)
Gigabyte odin 720w psu (is it good/ok?)
Zotac gtx 275 amp edition
Seagate 1tb hard drive
And then I want windows 7 - which version?? and 32/64 bit??

Please help me setup this rig, haha. Thanks alot guys!!

Well, it's an overall good build. Although the gpu i would change.

Depending on the price of the GPU you selected, I think in terms of price to performance ratio, the ATI HD 5850 would be better choice.

As for Windows 7, Get the 64 bit.

PSU, i never tried a Gigabyte PSU before so i cant say how good it is. some one else might be able to giving info on that PSU.

Yeah - use Corsair momory, er Corsair PSU ( :D  ) and sack the GTX275 off for a Radeon 5850 (DirectX11! and faster than the NVidia). Get Windows 7 retail - you get both 32 bit and 64 bit discs so you can change if you want but I would use the 64 bit version, I use it and havent had any real problems. If you use 32 bit you will only be able to use 3.5Gb of RAM.

The SIGNATURE 650/850, the CP-850/1000 and the EARTHWATTS 380D/430D/500D/650/750 are made by Delta Electronics, which is a great, great manufacturer.
