Default Custom Computer Building and Compatibility

Compatability
Today at 3:16am Hello.

In a short time I'm going to purchasing some certain products and would like to know if they are all compatable with each other.
I'm going to be custom building this PC, and so have got parts seperately. Also I'll be using this computer for loads of gaming, photoshop/C4D/imageready and lots of internet surfing/downloading.

The parts are:
PSU - Antec Phantom 500w PSU.
- Specs found at http://www.pcmaniacs.com.au/product_...oducts_id=2163

Case - Antec PlusView 1000 AMG
- Specs found at http://www.aussiepcshop.com/product_...roducts_id=656

Mobo - ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe
- Specs found at http://www.computeralliance.com.au/p...x?qryPart=6862

Memory - Corsair DDR2 PC2-4300 Twinx 2 x 512MB
- Specs found at http://www.digimatrix.com.au/?gOo=Z2...3Q&goodsid=516

Sound Card - Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2
- Specs found at http://www.wyntec.com.au/product_inf...oducts_id=1372

CPU - Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 965
- Specs found at http://www.blockcentre.com/shop/prod...roducts_id=219

HDD - Seagate 320GB 7200RPM 16MB Serial ATA II
- Specs found at http://shop.pc.net.au/index.php?main...oducts_id=9559

Video card - XFX GeForce 7900GTX 512MB DDR3 XXX Edition (T71F-YDD)
- Specs found at http://www.lmc.com.au/obs/website/pr...?prodid=557852

Ok thats it.
If you need to also know the model of the Keyboard and Mouse then tell me, and yea!

Once again all I really need to know with this stuff is if its all compatible and if my power supply is adequate. Also I'd like to know if this system is suitable for lots of gaming and photoshop/C4D/imageready, along with internet surfing and downloading.
Thanks.

You need more memory for those types of applications. 2GB

The pentium Extreme is worthless for that price. Get a Core 2 duo instead. (fraction of price for better performance)

The motherboard (AMD) and CPU (INTEL) aren't compatible.

I would go with the PCP&P Silencer 610w PSU.

The Pentium Extreme is Dual Core.

Ill have a look at more memory and fixing up the CPU and MOBO issues.

Whats better, AMD or INTEL?

no but the core 2 duo is a better cpu overall then the one your looking at. the whole architecture is just well.. way better. and its cheaper to , which means more money for other goodies hint (RAM).

right now intel has the upper hand the the core 2 duo. Note: they usually call it "conroe" around here. it has a way bigger cache, and less power consumtion.

You have the wrong kind of Memory also.

You may want to pick up some DDR2-800 but I can't find it on the site.
