Computer Specs

I am building my first computer, and would love to receive some help from the more experienced people in this community. This computer will be used primarily for gaming online, and my price range is about a max of $1500, although any way you can help me save a lot of money will not be frowned upon. Here are the parts I have so far, compatibility or lack there of is my main concern:

    didn't notice at first but you should have posted this in the new system build forum using their request layout in one of the stickies
  2. Agree with 6GB just enough. Use the savings from the RAM to upgrading the CPU to an i7 930.
