Ok, so all I know is I want something around 2.4ghz or higher processing speed, and at least 4gb of RAM. That's pretty much ALL I know.
I did my best to see if the parts I've chosen will fit together, but I'm honestly not sure. Below I've listed the part and a link to it on TigerDirect(where I'm buying from):

Radeon HD 5450
http://www.tigerdire...1&sku=H231-5452

ECS G41T-M7 Motherboard - Micro ATX
http://www.tigerdire...2&sku=S458-1357

Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300
http://www.tigerdire...u=CP1-DUO-Q8300

Corsair 4GB DDR3
http://www.tigerdire...61&sku=C13-1005

Asus DRW-24B1ST 24X Internal DVD Burner
http://www.tigerdire...4&sku=A455-5022

500W Power Supply
http://www.tigerdire...43&sku=T13-2027

HP 1 x LTO Ultrium 200/400GB Hard Drive
http://www.tigerdire...2&sku=H24-30010

Diablotek Mid Tower Case
http://www.tigerdire...05&sku=D15-1232

Ok that's it. Thank you for any help you can provide. Oh and I'm also trying to keep it under or very close to $400, so if you suggest some different parts please keep that in mind. Sorry if my requests sound ridiculous, I honestly don't know much about building. I do have a friend that will help with the physical building part, but I have to do everything else on my own.
Thank you!

Hi TheRedHatter, :D

You PSU is not suitable. It does not have a connector cable for your video card and is a very poor quality unit.

The PSU is the engine in the PC and needs to deliver stable power. If it develops a fault without warning it often burns out other parts of the computer. I recommend you buy this unit which is a little more powerful than you need at the moment but if you upgrade other parts later, like a second video card, it will still be alright or could be used in a completely new build.

Ok cool, thanks! So if I get that Power Supply you recommended, all of this should work together just fine? Will I need anything else besides an OS?

Sorry for the delay.

Sorry, but no.

There are still issues.

The HDD you selected is not compatible, this is the one I recommend, > http://www.tigerdire...74928&CatId=139


Do you have a screen, mouse and keyboard?
