Good choice! Look into the new Gigabyte boards that have USB 3 and SATA 3 and 3 times the power to the USB ports! They are the latest stuff!

This would be one of the best. They cost a little more but you will NEVER regret it.

Modular....and they come in higher (and lower) wattages if you so desire.

4 GB is a good start. I went with 8 GB and ended up moving back to 4 GB because I was no coming close to using even 4 GB.

Look around at the prices. DDR2 WAS a lot cheaper 5-6 months ago, but today they are very close and you're getting quite a bit more speed and efficiency.

I don't see a video card in that list.

Are you locked into that case? It is 110 here in the US. You can certainly knock 30 or 40 off that easily.

Consider these, all around $60 to $70

Antec 300; It has front and rear 120 MM fans and space for plenty of drives.

Coolermaster Centurion 534 or Centurion 590;

Gigabyte Triton 180




You have modest power supply requirements--400 to 500 watts is plenty.

These are good units and most are "80 plus certified", which is of some benefit.

I would disagree with that choice or CPU and motherboard, but I suppose we all have our preferences.

The i5 would be MUCH better.

But it looks good, good luck on the build, you will be more than happy I'm sure.
