Hi guys! I'm new here so I hope you can help me out.

I'm planning to buy a new CPU for myself soon.
So I'm just wondering if all these components are compatible with each other.


Processor: Intel Core i7 950 3.06ghz 8MB S1366

Motherboard: Asus P6T-SE X58/GBLAN/DDR3

Memory: Kingston 2GB PC3-10600 DDR3 1333 (I'm planning to buy 2 pcs)

Hard Drive: Samsung 1TB 7200rpm SATA

Video Card: (Still thinking which to buy :p )
Inno3d GTX465 1GB DDR5 256bit DVI/HDMI
or
Inno3d GTX470 1280MB DDR5 320bit HDMI

DVD: (Help me out with this.)
Sony DVDRW AD7260 26X Sata OEM
or
Samsung DVDRW SH-223C 22x SATA
or
Samsung DVDRW SH-223L 22x SATA Lightscribe


Oh, and some more questions.
Which among the 3 DVD is most worthy of buying?
What is OEM? I searched for it but I didn't understand a thing. LOL
And lastly, how many watts will I need for all of these? Is 600watts PSU enough to handle them?


Any suggestions/comments/recommendations are greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for all the answers! :)

two things wrong with this ram. 1. It is "dual channel" it is goes up like 2, 4, 8, ect... Core i7's only support TRIPLE channel, 3, 6, 12, 24..... 2. the CAS is high on that ram, a good G.skill RAM is better, try this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

basically it is like, ATI makes a graphics card called "bob" (for example), ATI doesn't want to really have to sell it themselves, so they ask, PowerColour if THEY want to(or the other way around), Power Colour says OK!, and then sells their version of the card "bob"

ehh, a good 600 might be able to, but if you play on upgrading(or having it a long time you will eventually want to upgrade), Overclocking, ect... I'd get 750 or higher...
