Hi there, this my first try at building my own pc, have a friend helping me put it together, after two weeks of reading this awesome site, and surfing around the net for other reviews, i came up with this system solution, in denmark this is pretty much the cheapest you can do, so i am hoping i chose atleast a few good things.
its a micro-atx system which is made for a low budget pc in denmark..

the whole thing costs 664$

If anyone will take their time to give me a quick review of what they think this it will be appreciated a whole lot :) 

Asus Radeon PCI-E HD5570 1GB DDR3 Low Profile
Antec Solution Series NSK1480 Desktop 350W
Sony NEC AD-7261S-0B 24x SATA Sort - LightScribe
Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 320GB 16MB SATA
Kingston Value RAM DDR3 2GB 1333MHz CL9
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black 3.2GHz 125W Box AM3

am most concerned about the motherboard and if the psu can hold the system going..

Let me know what you think:) 

thanks in advance

Welcome with your selection of parts the PSU is big enough. Are the bits priced through or just a single vendor. If you are planning this as a gaming rig an upgrade on the GPU to HD5670 (PSU can still handle that) would be worth it and if you are going to have a 64bit OS 4GB ram is the recommended minimum.

Im using two different vendors, else it would be overpriced if i bought all the stuff at the same place :S .. , but ill look into the gpu advice and with the cost of rams these days, i might aswell upgrade to 4gbs ..

thanks alot for replying, means alot when you are new at collecting pieces :) 

also, is the mobo able to overclock? havent seen any previous systems running with this, and be overclocked..

I have no experience with that board but most Asus boards are good overclockers and you have an unlocked CPU.
