Budget pc compatibility advice

Hi, my dad has £150 to spend on upgrading his pc. he needs;
1) Motherboard
2) CPU
3) RAM
4) CPU cooler
5) Hard drive
And I'm looking for advice if;
a) The hardware is all compatible together
b) Could I do better for price/performance (pref. hardware from same site)
Here is the hardware I'm looking at;
1) Motherboard http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB-028-AK&groupid=701&catid=1903&subcat=1483
2) CPU http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CP-261-AM&groupid=701&catid=6&subcat=1825
3) RAM http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MY-296-CS
4) CPU Cooler http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HS-028-CM&groupid=701&catid=57&subcat=1395
5) Hard Drive http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HD-118-WD&tool=3

I'm have built Pc's before, but it was a while ago and I'm not up to date on compatibility of hardware.
I'd appreciate any advice
Thanks jon

  1. You really don't need an aftermarket cpu cooler, stock heat sink/fan is fine...; I'd try to bump your mem to a 4 gb kit (2x2gb) if possible....

    Otherwise, ....start your assembly and OS install!!
  2. Thanks for reply.
    Unfortunately the CPU is OEM so i just went with the cheapest fan i could get.
    I your opinion are ALL the components compatible with each other?
  3. bump :)
