Hi i'm custom building a system for the first time and wondering if the spec i choose will all work. Any help/opinion will be appreciated. I don't need the best system but i do want a powerful one and i've never try overclocking my system before. I live in australia so all prices are in aus dollar.

CPU - i5 2500 $228
MB - asrock p67 ext4 - $176
GPU - 1gb Gigabyte GTX 460se in SLI - 2 * 184 = $368
RAM - G.Skill Ripjaws-X DDR3 1333 4G - $62
SSD - Patriot Inferno SanForce SF-1222 60G - $139
HDD - WD Blue SATA3 500G - $44
Tower - NZXT phantom white - $175
PSU - AYWUN A1-750E - $79
DVD burner - LG - $22

Total - $1 293

Sound card - Asus PCI-E DX - $98

I pick aywun for the psu cause i've heard a few good review about it, does anyone know more about them? alternative psu are around $35-60 more eg. Corsair tx 650 - $114

The HD aint of high quality either but i figure i don't really need a good HD cause i have the SSD and i hardly store too much stuff on my computer anyhow. Thankyou all

ah yea that, i've read about that issues before but i can wait. I believe intel will sort it out soon enough and realease new MB that's not affected. I'm in no big hurry to buy my computer, i've waited 2 or so much for SB to come out so i'm quite patiance with it.
