Okay, so, it's looking like:

Caviar Hard Drive 1.5TB

DDR3-1333 RAM from Corsair

Motherboard

i7 860 Processor 2.8GHz

GeForce GTX 470


Coolermaster 212 fan


Acer 21" 1920 x 1080 Monitor

Corsair 750W power supply

DVD/CD reader

Shiny new case

I also still need to find a 64-bit copy of Windows 7. The ones on Newegg appear to all be OEM. (I was told OEM was bad!)

Can someone verify that all these parts will:

A. Work with each other
B. Be the only things I need to purchase (It'd be a shame to discover I need to wait another week for a single cable to ship or something)
C. Fit inside the case

??

OEM is not bad.

What do you want the machine to do?

Gaming and general use. It's got to last me through college.

Newegg has the "OEM", "Upgrade" and "Full" versions of 64-bit Windows 7 "Home", "Professional" and "Ultimate":

(Ignore the "Anytime Upgrade"'s, which are for upgrading Windows 7 to a higher version, [Starter to Home, Home to Pro, Pro to Ultimate, etc.]).
