Re: First build - Suggestions?
You have to ask yourself what the computer is going to be for. By lookin at the parts, my guess is gaming. For now, I would stay away from Creative with Vista - Creative isn't keeping up on their end. Research some other companies (HT Omega, Azuntech, M-Audio) to find better cards.
I would go for the Quad Core if I could. Why not!!?
Everything else looks fine. Although you might need some thermal paste, unless your are going to use retail...
