Default New....and seeking input on new build

First off, hello all....was looking was looking for a forum on computers and stumbled across this site. I like the information I've read thus far, and figured I would post this up.

I'm about to build another computer. Been 4 years since my last build. Below is what I've picked out to buy. Just wanted to get feed back on do's and don't's of this build. Maybe you see something that isn't compatible:

MotherBoard = ASUS M4A89GTD PRO AM3 AMD 890GX SATA 6Gb/s HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

CPU = AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor

Memory = G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory

Power Supply = CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC

Video Card = GIGABYTE GV-N26SO-896I GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Hard Drive = SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

CPU Cooling = ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler

Case = Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

DVD Drive (x2) = ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner

Again, thank you for the input.....most likely will be buying this week (unless you guys spot something off/better).

Have a good one.

you should look for an hd 5770 instead of a gtx 260. has close performance but it runs cooler, consumes less power and supports dx11.
