I am a first time builder, I don't plan on OC'ing or SLI. I picked out the parts that I found to be the best deals on newegg and decided on the i5-750 and gtx 460 based on reviews. The big things i wanted to be sure on is if everything was compatible (everything fits in case, mobo and cpu good match, etc.)and if my PSU will have enough juice.

Nice job... you found some great combo deals! that's a steal!
*AGREED with danman - the spinpoint's perform much better than their pricetag would reflect. It's a worthwhile $10dollars more to scoop up the Samsung... especially since its 180gb more and beter performance
