Default FINAL My computer build

Alright, lets just say i'm a little ansty right now because i'm within minutes of ordering my first computer that will run games better than the usual 20FPS on low settings.
I already ordered the Video Card, Processor, and hard drive last night....
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814130071
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16819115005
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16822144701

My price range was around 1200-1300 US $ but those three things already cost me $700

This will about to be the 2nd things i order for about 575$

CD / DVD Burners (RW Drives)

ATX Computer Cases

Sound Cards

Power Supplies

Keyboards

Cooling

Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128018

Desktop Memory
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145566

Basically, i just want to make sure this is the best stuff i can buy for that price. The motherboard seemed a bit old but I heard its good for overclocking. Last thing, i want to make sure everything will fit in that case or whether i should get a bigger case.

Thanks in advance. Wish me luck on my first big purchase.

trust me i would, but i can't afford another 130 dollars. I will buy more after christmas, but it took me a while to save up $1300. But if that's the only complaint that you see, it really reassures me.

All depends on what he's interested in doing with his computer.

if you can only afford 1 gig of RAM atleast get a 1gb stick instead of 512

You don't need the thermal compound either, the Zalman cooler's already got a tube of that stuff. Saves you a quick $5.99

i'm in the process of buying a new system too.. decided on E6600, 2GB xms memory, 320gb, etc.. all for $1186.84... but holy crap when i saw that u were getting an 8800gts i was flabergasted.. why???

cause honestly... it's making me not want to get the 7900gs since it won't be dx10 compliant.. errrrrr

should i be worried about dx10?
