Hello. I'm planning to build a new pc soon. This will be my first build, so I wanted to ask the members their opinion and suggestions about the components I have selected.

BUDGET RANGE: $500-600 After Rebates

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: surfing the internet, watching movies, listening to music, photo editting.

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Case (Antec 300), monitor, ketboard and mouse

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA

PARTS PREFERENCES: AMD

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1024x768 or 1280x1024

Is there anything I'm forgetting? Would I need more case fans beside the one that came with the Antec 300? Is the WD Green ok for an OS Drive, or would it beb better to get a Blue or Black HDD?
