Default Custom Build Help

After doing a lot of research and parts shopping I need advice from the pros. This is going to be my setup, I think everything will work but I want to make sure if everything is compatable. I don't game, maybe The Sims with my girlfriend or Rollercoaster Tycoon with my little sister. All I am going to be doing and is downloading software, games, movies, DVD encoding, photo editiing and browsing the web.

Intel Compatible Motherboard



Video Card (I don't game)

Computer Case

Hard Drive

Power Supply

I currently have a mouse, keyboard, speakers, a 250GB HD, a 8x DVD burner and a POS monitor so I might get an ACER 19" LCD Widescreen monitor. Any good? Thanks in advanced guys I really want to get this thing ordered.

I'd downgrade CPU to a E6300 just to save a little cash. You probably won't be needing all that performance and the E6300 will be able to handle the things your wanting to do.

Looks like a nice setup to me. For your needs it should be great. From what I see everything should work fine together. Maybe someone with more experience could double check just to be sure?

All the best.
