here's my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/F9Ic

i'm using my old DVD burner, monitor, mouse, keyboard, and OS.


is this build legitimate, compatible, and maxed out for the price?
also, i'm a total noob and this will be my first NEW 'puter. do i need to buy cables and whatnot for the mobo and everything? does this all come with the product?
