Hi everyone this is my first post on tom's hardware.



1.

Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 AMD970 + SB950 AM3+ 4x DDR3 GLAN SATA3 USB3.0 ATX
Internet Price: $105.00

AMD Phenom II AM3 955 Black Edition (3.2Ghz) 64-Bit Quad-Core CPU
Internet Price: $119.00

Kingston 8GB(2 X 4GB) DDR3-1333MHZ PC10600
Internet Price: $56.00

Western Digital 1TB SATA3 HDD 32M Caviar Blue
Internet Price: $57.00
LG H24NS70 SATA 24X+- Super Multi DVDR Black
Internet Price: $25.00

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit OEM(Microsoft OEM Terms&condition apply)
Internet Price: $89.00

Antec Three Hundred Tower Gaming Case- Black NO PSU

Antec 450W ATX NEO 450C ECO PSU

Are these parts all compatible? Im looking to play starcraft 2 and web browsing.

Feel free to suggest any changes (has to be in the $650) range though.


2. So any advice for a first time builder? I will be hopefully building this computer next week. Anyone know any good guides? I've read some articles and seen vids on youtube but Ive never had first hand experience in building a computer (closest thing ive done is install a gpu and replace the cpu heatsink LOL).



Thanks for the help! :)
