Hey all.

I recently decided to build a new computer for casual gaming. i want to build it myself since i heard and beilive its cheaper.

Of course as my first computer i'm comparing tons of hardware and stats online. i'v learned a ton more about computers over the last few days but im far from a expert.

I'm thinking of going with this build but i want to make sure it will work before i buy the componants. So here's my list, ANY constructive critism will be welcome an loved

Motherboard: MSI K9N SLI-F Motherboard - v2.0, NVIDIA nForce 570 LT SLI, Socket AM2/AM2+, ATX, Audio, PCI Express, Gigabit LAN, USB 2.0, Serial ATA, RAID

RAM: Corsair Dual Channel TWINX 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Memory (2 x 2048MB)

Hard drive: Western Digital Caviar SE16 640GB Hard Drive - 7200, 16MB, SATA-300, OEM

Graphics Card: XFX GeForce 8800 GT Video Card - Alpha Dog Edition, 512MB DDR3, PCI Express 2.0, SLI Ready, (Dual Link) Dual DVI, HDTV, Variable Fan Speed
