Default Final list

I DO NOT want to do anything different than this I just want to know if this will all work together because tomorrow I'm going to start ordering this and I don't want to have any regrets. I currently have $200 and I'm going to start earning more And I plan on buying the Mobo CPU and RAM first so nothing has to be changed if any of it is canceled

RAM

OS

Motherboard

Case

HDD

CPU Fan

Thermal Paste

CPU

PSU


NOTE:I already have a Optical drive

This is just the initial build and I will add on to it later but this is all I have planned. If you see anything seriously flawed I would like feedback

I would change a few stuff, but As far as am concerned that looks good.

I dont see that high end, so I am sure people are trying to get rid of their computer that have those specs, so why not buy a used one and save yourself the labor?

i used to have that same psu and it worked fine for my old 8500gt and pentium d. but needed a little more amperage for my 9800gtx. but never failed on me but i think the one got had a defective fan because it was always so low and the led's barley lit up. but i just swapped the fan and it was fine
