Default Gaming Comp Compatability

Checking the compatability on the items I have selected so far. Also, if anyone has any suggestions for a better alternate for a certain item than I'm also up for suggestions. However, one of my main concerns is the compatability and how well this system will run.

eVGA Geforce 7800GT 256-P2-N515-AX Desktop PC - $295.00 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130247

DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D ATX AMD Motherboard - $124.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136152

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ 1GHz FSB Socket 939 Dual Core Processor - $470.00 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103546

Western Digital Raptor 36.7GB 3.5" Serial ATA150 Hard Drive- [url]http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16822144200

CORSAIR XMS 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM Dual Channel Kit System Memory - $233.00 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145575

Antec TruePower 2.0 TP2-550 EPS12V 550W Power Supply - $99.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/CustRa...82E16817103932


I haven't quite figured out the case I want yet. If anyone has any suggestions for a reliable case that also looks cool (Yea, gotta have a good looking one) would love it.

I think your build looks great. For a case, here's a case I'm getting with my new build, the NZXT Lexa: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811146018

If you like the design, Google "NZXT Lexa Review" and there are tons of great reviews to look over.

Also, a great place to shop for cases: www.xoxide.com

Still being the computer noob I am, how will the size of the case effect my build?

Also another random question that came to my mind. Should I upgrade the ram any or keep what I have?

Hate to bump this, but I'm assuming from the answers I got that everything I have here is nicely compatable?
