A good build that will work well but needs a couple of adjustments.
Mob is good, this is your Gigabyte page bookmark it or save to favoriets > http://www.gigabyte....spx?pid=3440#sp
Go to the page and note there are 2 versions. version 2 has Gigabyte Sata chipset version 1 does not. When ordering, contact Newegg and find out which one they are supplying. It is not stated on the website.
RAM. What you have selected is NOT compatable. You need DDR3. 2x2GB = 4GB. In the lower speed there is not a lot of choice, On your Mobo page, right hand side, click on memory support list. click on your region and a list will appear. This is a list of parts that have been tested and will work on your Mobo. Other ram would probable work. but have not been tested.
Video Card. Good. this is the web page >
http://www.sapphiret...sn=0001&pid=341 Just so you can check system requirements.
Hard Drive. OK, I would spend an extra $10 for the black edition for the 32MB catch AND if you can stretch I would get this drive Western Digital Caviar Blue WD1600AAJS 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive to use for your OS and programs and the other drive for storage.
Case is OK but I prefer the PSU at the bottom and a fan in the top of the case, other may well disgree.
OS. 64bit, a good choice.
Please post back.
