I already have usable 1.5tb HDD and DVD Drives from my old computer so I don't need to buy them

What I want to know is if this is all compatible with eachother. Any feedback is appreciated

are u using it for gaming because if yes 4gb is the max u can go for memory other than that it's overkill

also that cpu cooler is not worth the money

a haf 922 has the dimensions of a full tower cheaper and can do the 932 job anytime

that gpu is weak

that mobo isn't that great

fill out the stickie in my sig and i can build u a better build for the money

Oh if your current Optical is not SATA, then grab the cheapest one you can find, like $20.

Newegg.ca links don't work properly in firefox. You can manually copy paste them, or use another browser^^.
