It is a good idea to post specs, as we can make recomendations on the parts.

But just for general points. Make sure the PSU is a good one. Cheap PSU's die early, and can take out hardware.

Western digital and seagate are the best HDD manufacturer's.

XFX cards have a high fail rate.

If you get a OEM CPU you will need to buy a heatsink.
