Question: Are these products good, and are they compatible with each other? Also, what should I use for the case, CD driver, and fan? Have I left anything else out?

Looks like everything should work. Personally i think 160 gigs is too small for the hard drive. A 500 gig drive coulod be partitioned into 2 or 3 drives so you could separate your video/audio from the data and programs files. As for a cd drive i would choose the Phillips 20X DVD-RW drives as they are quiet and efficient, and you only need one to record DVD's and CD's.

Maybe a nice zerotherm cpu cooler like this one.

As for a case i would pick either a fancy one to have the eyecandy for myself, or a cheap durable one if you just don't care.

In a SATA setup there are no master and slave drives. In old IDE setups your main drive was your master and your secondary was your slave. They had to use jumpers to indicate which was which.

Typically no onboard chipset is as good as any discrete gaming card.


Edit: fixed bad spelling....

Errr, that's discrete. There is a big difference in the meaning of those two words. :)
