How does my parts list look? Everything compatible?

I just finished my parts list for my home built system. Could you please check over them for me so I know that they are all compatible.

PSU: 530W PSU $40

GPU: Visiontek ATI Radeon HD 5670 $60

Disk: Asus DvD+CD RW $20

Ram: 4GB DDR3 $30

Motherboard; earlier I asked for suggestions so I put together a list and wanted to know which one I should go with. I believe all are compatible with my GPU. Is my CPU compatible with all, though?
- MSI 870-G45 $70

CPU: AMD Phenom II 1100T Black Edition Six Core $190

Case: Cooler Master RC-430-KWN1 Elite 430 Mid Tower ATX Case $40

OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit (OEM) $100

Total: Around $615 after rebates w/ shipping+tax. This price sounded phenomenal compared to the prebuilt, refurbished system I was going to originally buy from asus, which would have needed a new PSU, GPU, and only had a 1045T processor.

Does this system look reliable, fast, and primarily future proof? I want to make sure that the motherboard will be able to stay without being upgraded because by buying the OEM form of Windows, changing the board will force me into buying another copy..

Note: I have many hard drives lying around which is why there are none on my list.

My use for this PC is for HD video editing in programs such as adobe after effects, adobe premiere pro, and sony vegas. I will also use it for streaming HD content from Hulu. If it has the capabilities, I will use it for gaming, I'm not much of a gamer though, so probably minecraft on max settings :P. Does my GPU+CPU look like it could handle those?

If you see anything that you'd like to replace etc. please do. I really don't want to go any higher on price, though.

  1. I don't know if this matters or not but the power supply isn't "certified" for your graphics card
    You can check all the certified ones at:

    but otherwise, looks ok
  2. Everything is fine. You could go with the first motherboard choice you have there, it works fine with your RAM and GPU. Also, my Power supply unit isnt certified for my graphics card either, and its never mattered for me. So i think you will be fine.
