Default HI My name is Dan!

Im looking to build a new gaming computer and it will be my first one, I joined the forum as I want to learn more about the hardware aspect of computing.
I feel like the best way to learn is to build something!

This is what I had in mind. (keep in mind and this build is based on a very rudimentary knowledge).

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz

MB: ASUS M4A79XTD EVO AM3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard

GPU: ASUS Radeon HD 5850 (Cypress Pro) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5

PWR: PC Power and Cooling Silencer 750 Quad Red 750W ATX12V

RAM: MGeIL Value PLUS 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

HD: Seagate Barracuda 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s

CASE:Thermaltake V3 Black Edition Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Any advice is greatly appreciated!
