Hi,
I'm new to building computers, and after reading many internet guides i have come up with a sort of rough list of the components i might buy to build a PC. I think all the components are compatible but im not sure. Here is the list:

Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1333MHz XMS3 Memory Kit CL9 1.5V unbuffered

Intel Core i3 550 3.2GHz Socket 1156 4MB L3 Cache Retail Boxed Processor 200934

Intel TOM COVE DH55TC H55 Socket 1156 VGA DVI HDMI Out 8 Channel Audio MATX Motherboard

Seagate 500GB 3.5" SATA-III 6Gb/s Barracuda Hard Drive 7200RPM 16MB Cache

Palit GTS 450 1024MB GDDR5 DVI VGA HDMI Out PCI-E Graphics Card

Casecom 400W 12cm Fan PSU - 20+4pin 1x SATA 4x Molex

Casecom MA-1199 Shiny Black MATX Tower Case - No PSU

I found them all on ebuyer.com and was just wondering whether someone with more experience could tell me if if they are all compatible.Also what cables and other extra things might i need (i know i need a monitor and keyboard though )
Thanks,

To answer your question, your parts should work fine together. But I would go with newegg if you can (usa or canada). Newegg takes personal checks or paypal now. I would not go with socket 1156, even though the i3 550 overclocks well. The motherboards are already getting hard to find. Here's my recommended list:

The HEC case has three 120mm fans, fan filters, bottom mounted power supply port, and free shipping.
