:) :) Hey guys I'm 14, live in New Zealnd, and my dad is letting me build (or get built) my own computer and is thinking of spending around $1500 NZD (roughly $1000 USD) so can you guys tell me if it will all work together and if I should look for something better/cheaper. Also can you guys please give any other advice on this build. Thanks so much :) , here are the specs:

CASE ENERMAX ECA3162 PHOENIX NEO ATX MID TOWER CASE BLACK NO PSU
DVD LITE-ON IHAS324 SUPER ALLWRITE 24X DVD WRITER DVD+-24X8X8/8X4,DV
CPU AMD PHENOM II X4 955 8MB CACHE AM3 3.2GHZ BLACK ED RETAIL
Keyboard & mouse
Graphics card POWER COLOR ATI RADEON HD5850 1GB DDR5 256BITS PCIE 2XDVI HDMI
HDD WESTERN DIGITAL CAVIAR BLUE WD5000AAKS 500GB 3.5' 16MB SATA2
MoBo Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3 DDR3 Socket AM3 SATA3 USB3.0 ATX Motherboard Retail
RAM NEW! Corsair CMSO4GX3M2A1333C9 4GB Kit (2x 2GB) PC-10600 (1333MHz) 2x 204-pin SO-DIMM DDR3 RAM, CL9,
PSU TCOOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus 550W Silent

Also, will the RAM be very good, will the HD 5850 fit into the case and would it be worth sending it to a computer store to be put together :) (I dont want to screw up a $400 graphics card)

Cheers :)
