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:

for the ram you should get a triple channel kit like this

Samsung Spinpoint F3 is a better HDD

you can get a smaller PSU and a better GPU

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

get the i7 930 instead of the i7 920....
also gtx 285 is crappy... for that price i'd rather buy a ati radeon 5850..
