Hey guys I just wanted a few people to run through this list and check if everything's compatible each other..

Case - Thermaltake Element S
Power Supply - Cooler Master Silent Pro 600 or 700w (not sure if I really need 700w, even if I upgrade to a 6850 later on)
Motherboard - Asus M4A87TD EVO
Processor - AMD Phenom II 965 Black Edition
RAM - Corsair 4GB Kit (2x2GB) 1333Mhz DDR3 (I don't think 1600Mhz works with my CPU, or so i was told...)
Graphics Card - ATI 4350 (definitely going to upgrade to 6850 in future)
Hard Drives - Two Samsung Spinpoint 500GB in RAID 0 (using either motherboards build in raid or a separate PCI raid card, still haven't decided)
Optical Drive - Some random DVD drive, doesn't really matter does it..

So would this build work? Any tips, advice.

Thanks heaps:)

I will be buying the parts from iibuy.com.au, a hopefully reliable and good store.

I already have an old graphics card and optical drive that I can use for the time being, two monitors, two 500GB hard drives and keyboards and mouses and all that basic stuff.

Thanks for the reply :)

^ I have seen many people recommending msy.au and http://pccasegear.com/ often,...
As for the parts -
1. CPU - The X4 955 is as good and you can easily set it to run @ 965's speed, by just incrementing the multiplier

2. PSU - If using a single card, then that 600W would suffice,...

Rest are fine,...
