What's your budget? What's the purpose of the computer? Gaming? Video edition?

tigerdirect. I just need to know if everything is compatible. I will mainly just use it for browsing, playing WoW, having limewire playing, and being on msn. All at once

are you lookin at TD because you can pick them up locally? you could probably find some better prices/selections at Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

just how it is right now, the only real incompatibility i see is that the lg optical drive is ide and it doesnt look like that intel mobo has an ide port, only sata. i would get sata over ide in general, but in your case you need sata.

some things i would change though

- getting a 2x2gig kit of ram since the i5 750 supports ram in dual channel not triple channel. anyway with the uses you mentioned, 4gigs will be plenty plus youll saves some money.

- getting a psu from a more reputable brand.

- the mobo will come with decent onboard sound. you could drop the sound card for now and see how you like it. if it doesnt work for you, you could still get it later.

- you might be able to find a better gfx card for the same amount or a little extra money from ati's offerings.
