Default Is this any good?

OK, I decided I might just build a PC myself, I have never done it before, but if I read through online step by step guides is it possible? << noob This is the system I have come up with from www.ebuyer.co.uk (item codes in brackets) it comes to about £620 (~$1100) can anyone please give me advice if all this is compatable together? and what you think? thanks

Actually instead of that HDD, would you rather have a Seagate Barracuda? any reccomendations on which one? I would like it to be pretty big

Welcome to the AMD family, enjoy your stay !

That looks cool for what you are going to be doing.
You aren't gaming right ?
I think i saw in your last post that you aren't.
But that is cool.
Good luck : )

AMD Athlon 64 3500+ Venice 90nm (Socket 939) - Retail (ADA3500BPBOX) (CP-119-AM)
