Default Please help with my first build

This is just gona be used for multimedia purposes. No gaming at all. This is what I have so far.......

Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813186098

Processor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103735

Hard drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148140

RAM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145590

Video Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125156

If anyone could look over this and see that everything is compatible. I need as much input as possible. Can someone also suggest a good priced sound card and cases that will fit that motherboard

Good choices. everything is compatible and would work great for multimedia. as for asound card i would go with a creative soundblaster. theyre great quality, or an x-fi. LanLi cases are always good, but pricey . i would just go on newegg and find a case you think looks cool lol

its atx, it will fit mostly anything.

i dont like foxconn but yeah, this would be a great multimedia machine if you get the sound card.
i find that onboard sound is very good. prehaps you could get the sound card at a later time when you're sure you need it

Great build overall; it's well put together. For a sound card, I would suggest a X-Fi Xtrememusic and any case will do really. Some good companies you should check out are Thermaltake (Tsunami, Armor, Shark, and Kandalf series) and Lian-Li. You should also get a good cheap PSU.

www.newegg.com

www.zipzoomfly.com

www.froogle.com

Just to name a few. You should probably search on Newegg for the one you want and then look on froogle or pricegrabber for the best price.
