So, i saw people on Youtube creating their own PC's. So i figure i'd give it a try. I don't generally refer to myself a geek or a techie guy, but i got my older brother to help me out.
So, if you got any suggestions for upgrades, any incompatibility, just let me know.
Here are the specifications.

OS: Win7 Ultimate (planned)
RAM: Sniper 8gb 1600 (12800CL9D-SR2) 2x4 (x2)
MoBo: Asus Maximus IV Gene Z
Graphics Card: EVGA GTS450 SC 1gb ddr5 128bit OR EVGA GTX550 Ti FPB 1gb ddr5 hdmi
Optical Drive: Samsung SH-B123L Blue ray combo
HDD: Western Digital 1.0 TB Sata3 Black
PSU: Acbel AB-R8II 650w
CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 (3.1G) 6mb 32nm
Chassis: Thermaltake Armor A60 (no psu)
Display: 24” Viewsonic VX2450 / VA2448
Heat sink: CoolerMaster V6GT cpu fan
Keyboard: Tt eSports Challenger (Pro -2500)
Mouse: Razer Abyssus Mirror Essential
Portable Sound Output Machine: A4-tech HS-100 black gaming headset
Please take note that these are NOT the final specs and i'm relying on your techy knowledge and experience with PC's.
BTW,thank you if you help me and my brother decide on what we're going to add to this PC.

Thanks, xtian010 :thumbsup: :help:

PS: i'd also like to know all of the parts prices. so, if you kindly copy paste it and add prices to the right enclosed in a parenthesis.
