Default My first build, how does it look?

Ok this is my first build and i was trying to build a machine that would be good for everyday things and gaming. My budget was 900 and it came in a little over at 930, so i cant add any more money in unfortuanely. I was just hoping to get coments and suggestions on if it would work and what i could improve on.

Here it is:

Processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115005

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128015

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227077

Hard Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822145088

Video Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130062

Power supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817189003

Monitor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824112004

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824112004

CD Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827136059

Then i would get a cheap mouse/keyboard.

So what do you think? Will it run? Will it be stable? Will it run games and everyday things?

Thanks for your help!

I'd recommend this hard drive instead:

a bit cheaper too, and a more reliable brand. I'd usually suggest a better brand PSU, but judging from the reviews of that XCLIO PSU, it looks ok. Um, your case link, is a link to the monitor.

you could spend a little more money and get this monitor.

19" is the way to go. I have 3 19" lcd's and they are alot better than a 17".
