Additional Comments: This is my first build ever. I just want to know if all my parts are compatible with each other, or if there is a cheaper approach for what i want to do. I will be using Windows 7 ultimate.
A few things.
-Get a Mobo with USB3 and sata3. You never know when you will need to transfer large files in a school enviroment.
-Drop to 4GB of ram. It will be fine.
-Get an Antec 380w PSU. Save money.
-Check out the Xigmatek Asgard II for a case. It has the Tom's nod!
-Get a Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB. Much faster/larger.
Get a 5670 GPU. Much faster.
Drop to a tri core. You won't notice the difference (except the one in your wallet )
sorry for untidy response, I'll do better next time.
I switched to the 5670 GPU
I lowered my PSU to 430w because the GPU needed only 400w.
I switched to a mobo with usb 3 and sata 6
I lowered my RAM to 4gb
I wanted to keep the case because it had 3 fans, plus i can get 10 dollars off.
I feel that i don't need 1tb, so i kept it at 500gb but upgraded to sata 6
