This is going to be the first PC I'm building from scratch so I'm not too familiar with compatability requirements and stuff.

Parts I'm thinking about getting are:

Video card (GeForce GTX 465 1GB)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Processor: (Intel Core i5-760)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Memory (4GB DDR3 1333 standard)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Mobo (LGA 1156 and 1333/1066 Memory standard)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case:

or

and Power supply (Pixo 600W):
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I didn't see any dimensions for the power supply slot on the cases so I'm not sure if there are any discrepancies or anything. I don't care too much about how the case looks as long as the buttons, usb ports, and audio jacks are accessbile.

Does this setup look like it should all work together?
Thanks!

Oops, I forgot about HD haha. Are there any suggestions on what to get for the HD? I hear people recommending 7200 RPM and around 1TB for the main drive? Any good reliable brands that are decently priced? =]
