hi im building a computer for the first time
and i have been doing alot of research on computer so i know i can build it but would like feedback
and some suggestions on what i should build
here are the parts im getting, keep in mind i am on a budget 0f >500

-AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX

-BIOSTAR A880G+ AM3 AMD 880G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

i already have my antec 600 case (which i love btw :) , and also have a antec 550w modulare psu

i plan on getting a gpu later but the built in one should do for now

Don't forget the CD drive xD

A harddrive is also very important.

i already have a dvd burner from my old computer the problem is its a ide drive but the motherboard has 1 ide port so it should work, i also have a hard drive but its also ide and because i only have one ide port i think its better to buy a sata dvd drive and keep my hdd because its cheaper

I would drop down to the X4 955 over the X4 965 to save a little additional money (little or no performance difference). I'm not a fan of the motherboard but on a budget they are hard to beat.

You need to put links to the parts man, theres like 10 kinds of G.SKILL ram for each one

Links make it a lot easier so we dont gotta find every single thing for specific details
