Hello, Im as new as it can get to this site and building computers, Ive been researching for about a week or so. I need some opinions on what is good or not and if certain things are compatible or not. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to decide to order from a custom build site or get everything from newegg too. I would like to get a fully fuctional pc (no monitor) but with mouse, keyboard, optical drive, hard drive, video card, mother board etc.
Here is what i was thinking:

$552 with rebates
This looked like a good bundle to me, I wanted the i5 750 for the extra performance. I honestly dont need a 1.5 TB of hard drive, 500 GB is fine but ill take the 1.5 TB. I dont know much about the case but it looks cool and the some of the reviews were good.
I want to get this ATI
5770,

I'm almost building this comp around it. $160 after rebate
and if anyone has any mouse/keyboard/speaker/headset/optical drive bundles or deals that would be great too. I do have some keyboards and mice to choose from but any opinions and suggestions are appreciated.
I also want a computer that will last, i got the video card DX11 so i can play future games as well but I'm mainly going to be playing source games and maybe a few others.
Thanks guys!

Can't comment on the bundle, newegg removed it. The card is nice, but becareful when building computers around a video card. Make sure that the card will fit in the case. I built two systems recently, one with an Antec Lanboy case (yes, its old, but its damn cool) and the other with a generic compusa case. The builds are nearly identical, save for the video cards. Long story short, I needed to test a random freeze issue and the only thing I couldn't swap was the video card because one was too long. Though my problem is totally unrelated to your concern, its worth mentioning the oversight.

Thanks though T_T but I found a better bundle though:

i like the case, I hope it fix the ATI 5770. The RAM looks good and PSU can handle the 5770, I think, and is the MOBO compatible with the 5770 even though its not a P55?
I'm still getting the i5-750. And I dont think I'll have a problem with the optical/hard drive:

If you guys can give me more advice on anything (if something is cheaper and better) I'll appreciate it.
Thanks again
