I am building my first computer and am looking for advice on the components I have chosen. This is what I have so far:
Power Supply: PSU-COM680-BK-US 680W ATX12V

Processor: i5 750

Motherboard: GA-P55-UD3

RAM: Crucial 4GB

Video Card: 5670PE51G

Hard Drive: WD Caviar 640GB

Keyboard and Mouse:

Fan/Case: RAIDMAX Tornado ATX-238WU

I would like to use my current CD/DVD player but if it won't work I will get this one:
CD/DVD: AD-7261S-0B

What do you think? Is this the best I can get for the price? Is there enough memory and storage or are there components that are not compatable?

Thank you for the help :) 

After looking into a couple more options, I now have:
Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz

Motherboard:MSI NF750-G55 AM3 NVIDIA


Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P

Power Supply: SeaSonic SS-650HT 650W



RAM: Corsair 4GB

Video Card: POWERCOLOR PCS+ AX5770 1GBD5


EVGA 01G-P3-1371-TR GeForce GTX 460

I figure I will stick with the previous case and hard drive unless I get too many good arguements to the contrary; in which case, I will probably go with the antec 300 case.
