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.

At the moment Intel's I5 Prices are pretty smick, you would only have to pay a little extra to get an I5. The performance increase would be worth it by far.

I would go for this mobo:

And this cpu:

****For GPU****

It would be SILLY!!! to buy anything but the new 7970 if that's in your price range...

Look here for additional info:

Or the card you have there is fine..

Plus if it's for gaming... pay the extra 20 bucks or so and get a full tower. Or get a good brand case like:

Thats what I have to say anyways.
