looking to build new pc

Here are the cheapest sites I know - all very competive - for you to compare prices
Thats not a bad deal you have thrown together - I like it - it would be hard to beat all in all, but have a look below as these stores are all cheaper in general.

Make sure the RAM is 1.5 volt to match the Sandy Bridge specification.

No reason to get 1600 MHZ PC-12800; stick with 1333 MHZ PC-10600.

Otherwise, it looks pretty good for your budget.

You've listed the DVD drive twice, with no operating system.

You've picked a lga 1155 MB and a lga 1156 CPU. Maybe someone else can tell if they are compatible. I know you can't do it the other way around, but don't know if the 1155 is backward compatible.

They are not compatible.

He needs a 2000 series CPU to go with the socket 1155 motherboard.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601? An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know). Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack? Thanks.
