Default Computer Building Help

K guys hello this is my first post here so yay.

This is the budget computer I am building.
I was wondering if all these are compatible with eachother because i am a noob at building computer.

Case-Newegg.com - NZXT Apollo Black SECC Steel Chassis ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail

Mobo-Newegg.com - MSI K9NGM4-F V.2 AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 7025 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

CPU-Newegg.com - AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ Brisbane 2.1GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 65W Dual-Core Processor - Retail

PSU-Newegg.com - Thermaltake Purepower W0100RU ATX 12V 2.0 500W Power Supply 115/ 230 V UL, CUL, TUV, FCC, and CB certification - Retail

Harddrive-Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar SE WD1600AAJS 160GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM

Burner-Newegg.com - LITE-ON Black 20X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 20X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA 20X DVD±R DVD Burner With 12X DVD-RAM Write - OEM

Wires-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812123110
Newegg.com - KINGWIN 15.74" SATA Data & Power combo cable Model SAC-04 - Retail

So that is my budget computer. yes i know it does not have a GPU but i will eventually. Are all those compatible with eachother? and is there more i need to buy?

Ty for all your help and hope to see you guys around!

Welcome to Tech-Forums!!!

The power supply is too much for your system, but I see you're going to eventually get a dedicated graphics card. But I would suggest this power supply instead:
Newegg.com - Rosewill RP500-2 ATX12V v2.01 500W Power Supply 115/230 V CSA, UL, TUV, FCC - Retail

What will be the purpose of this computer?

You also, do not need those wires, as the motherboard will come with them. You're also missing RAM. So here's a suggestion:
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

Yes sorry i do have ram. Are you sure i dont need those wires. because my Burner is OEM and harddrive is OEM. The purpose is mostly just like websurfing in such with maby some gaming on the side.

BTW i auctually bought that G skill ram. will it hurt my comp if the PSU is to high?

It won't hurt for the PSU to be high, but it's so unnecessary.

If you look at the motherboard pictures, it shows that it comes with an SATA cable. Well one, so I guess you just need to buy one more.

SATA I is backwards compatible with SATA II, and vice versa. But why are you getting an SATA I cable? Get SATA II.

It's not that I don't like Thermaltake, it's just that I don't normally recommend them for power supplies. And if I'm not mistakened, the Rosewill has more amps on it's +12v rails, which is more important. In my opinion, the Rosewill is better for the price. If you want, you can look at my Recommended PC Components guide. But the final choice is your's, so go for the Thermaltake if you want.

You won't need anymore SATA cables, unless you're buying more hard drives, or optical drives. And the power supply should have all the power cables that you need.

I would buy this motherboard:
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-MA78GM-S2H AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

It bascially has a HD 3450 strapped on inside, overclocking is awesome on the 780G chipset worth the extra $50 and you'll be able to hybrid crossfire in the future for a more cost effective solution.

I would also get this ram:
Newegg.com - WINTEC AMPX 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
Tighter timings will give it better performance.
