I'm building a pc for the first time hopefully using these components. I just wanted to get a more expert opinion before I buy anything. I was particularly worried about GPU, CPU, and motherboard compatibility. So far, I was thinking about getting:

1) Sunbeam AC9B-T Transparent Clear Acrylic ATX Mid-Tower (Comp. Case)

2) Seagate Barracuda 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" (Hard Drive)

3) Samsung BX2350 23" LED Backlight (LCD Monitor)

4) ASRock M3A770DE AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD (Motherboard)

5) ASUS EAH6670/DIS/1GD5 Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card (GPU)

6) Corsair Professional Series HX650 650W ATX12V v2.2 /EPS12V 2.91 SLI (PSU)

7) G.Skil Value Series 8GB (2x4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (RAM)

8) AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8GHz Socket AM3 125W Six-Core (Processor)


Any and all help will be appreciated. Like I said, this is the first time I've built a computer and could really use some input.

Stay away from the acrylic case. Not many have had much luck with them, generally something always breaks. You also have to assemble them yourself so unless you have some skill with putting a pc together, and the basic ability to follow written instructions without help i would get something different.
