well all that pretty much emptied my pockets, i already bought it all then discovered this just decided i would get an opinion before i actually put it together, alot of people say foxconn sucks, but im not sure about that, it has a good chipset, but then again im not sure, and am not that good with computers... is there any reason i should not put this together i.e. compatability issues that you or anyone else knows of?

No, there should be no compatibility issues. Foxconn, however, is very low end. They are like Jetway, which I have, and Jetway absolutely sucks. How much did all that cost you? You went to your local computer shop and he recommended all that to you, didnt you?
