You need DDR ram, not DDR2.

Your power supply is kinda questionable. I'd suggest this one.

I don't know much about ATI video cards, but if I were spending about that much, I'd get the 6800GS from nVidia.

Overall, not bad.

Intel Q6600 @ 3200 1.4v
Abit IP35 Pro "The Snake"
2x2gb A-Data @ 800
Diamond HD 3870 512mb

Great FORD TRUCK resource:

If your not overclocking, you can get a cheaper motherboard and put some more money into your graphics. Get this motherboard. You won't be let down.

The parts will work fine together. Unless you are going to get two video cards I wouldn't spend my money on a SLi board. However, ASUS makes good, solid, and stable boards.

Please, whatever you do, get yourself a better power supply! Its the backbone of every system. Personally, I wouldn't go any less than 480W and with a brand name like Enermax, Antec, Fortran -- there are others.

Personally, I recommend this hard drive. It's roughly the same, only it supports a 16mb buffer. I have this in my second system. It's a speedy little thing.
