First, sorry for creating a new thread for my first post. I've read the forums for a while, but haven't had a need to register until now.

I'm wanting to get a file server for my media (and other) files. Eventually I want to make it a RAID-5 machine (with maybe a simple MythTV backend), but for now I just care about future-proofing. I've picked out the following parts and would like to buy it today. I've never built a full PC, though (I've made a few from barebones), so I'm pretty nervous about purchasing it.

Could someone verify that these will all be compatible with each other? Am I missing something huge?

Case: COOLER MASTER ELITE 335 RC-335-KKN1-GP Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower

PSU: Antec EarthWatts Green EA-430D Green 430W Continuous power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS 12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC

Motherboard: BIOSTAR TA790GXB3 AM3 AMD 790GX ATX AMD

Processor: AMD Athlon II X2 250 Regor 3.0GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Processor

Memory: Crucial Ballistix 2GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model BL25664BN1337

Hard Drive: SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3EG HD203WI 2TB 5400 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

It will primarily be headless, so I'm just going to use the onboard video. It will be wired ethernet, so no WiFi card's needed. I just want to double-check that the parts will all work with each other.

Thanks for any help you guys can offer.

Sorry for bumping my own thread, but one little bump won't hurt, eh?

If anyone could give my list a quick look-over, I'd really appreciate it.

I looked over your parts, checked and made sure the motherboard will support your CPU and RAM. According to the motherboards website everything you want is supported. Your PSU has plenty of power for a system like that.

Hope you enjoy your new system!
