Right, so I'm building a new computer! Woo! Now, I don't like to make mistakes when it comes to large purchases, and if any of you get, oh I don't know, bored out of your mind, I would appreciate it if you would look through the components and give me your feedback and if there are any compatibility issues between the components (muy importante!). Thanks :)

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813128385
Processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6819103291
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6820145197
Power Supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6817171037
Video Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6814133256
Hard Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6822136074
OS: Vista Home Premium
Artic Silver 5 Thermal Compound, SATA BluRay burner, all-in-one card reader, 19" monitor... yea. I got those. :P

And of course, a case to put it all in: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6811133056

:) All for Newegg's wonderful price of $1,395.31 (Includes shipping)

Why does everyone prefer newegg when tigerdirect will answer all those questions for you & take your order over the phone? Newegg will not do any of that.

1) Newegg is cheaper.
2) Newegg has renowned customer support and RMA capabilities.
3) I don't like to order by phone.

Does their customer support include phone support?

I'll take that as a NO.

Customer support over the phone, yes. Orders, no.

But this is quite off-topic.

Nice build, I would wonder why you have gone for micro atx but it probably won't matter. And I think it would be worth spending an extra $15 on a 500 GB, 32MB cache hdd?

The motherboard came in a combo with the processor, so it's a money thing, and it shouldn't affect performance.

I'll shop around for a better HDD, thx for the input. :)
