For the last week Ive been working on a build and now I'm pretty much done. So before I place my order I'd like to get as much feedback and recommendations as possible.

The purpose of this comp will be for Gaming and work. I am considering overclocking but will be my first time.
My Budget was around 1500.


Motherboard: Gigabyte EP45-DS3L - $107.99
CPU: Intel E8400 - $169.99
Video Card: GTX 260 - $279.99
Hard Drive: Western Digital 640GB - $84.99
DVD drive: Pioneer 20X - $30.99
Case: Antex 300 - $59.99
Power Supply: Corsair 650W - $109.99 ($89.99 after rebate)
RAM: GSkill 2x2gb - $94.99
Monitor: 22" Samsung T220 - $319.99
Heatsink: XIGMATEK - $36.99
Thermal Compound: OCZ Freeze - $6.99
Total: $1302.89

I could use some speakers as well if anyone has any suggestions.
Also mouse and keyboard.

So please leave as much feedback as you can :) Thank You.

Specail thanks to kamille316 for pretty much building the hole thing for me :) thanks.

Hi kfuchs,

How much are you willing to spend on the speaker?

For keyboard and mouse, I think its subjective, I currently have the Logitech G15 2nd Gen and the Logitech MX518 and I love it however my brother hates them and he got the Razer Lycosa and the Razer Deathadder. I like the feel of the keys on the Razer Lycosa however the touch pad/media button's I've heard to not work properly. I've also heard people getting the Saitek keyboard. If there's a local computer store near you, I suggest paying them a visit and try out their keyboard/mouse to get a feel to it and just buy it online if that's the cheaper option.

Just a comment about mice and mousepads, there have been numerous complaints about having a Razer DA with a QcK mousepad. The Razer DA's laser does not work properly with the surface of any of the SteelSeries mousepads, so I'd advise not to get a Razer DA and a QcK. I currently have a Ms 1.1a and a QcK+ as well as a QcK Heavy, and I find it works wonders.
