I would also Appreciate it if you guys told me if the stuff would fit in the case ,how much "watts" I need for the computer to work and if everything is compatible with each other.

Here is my shopping list for the build so far.








total: 711.94
Cheers, Demonic Angel.

I would definitely get rid of the Raidmax case/powersupply combo (you'll thank me later)

The zotac v-card is suspect too since I don't really like that brandname... I'd also try for something with a 256-bit memory bus instead of 128-bit

I'm not an Nvidia guy, but this looks like a decent deal for a little more $$ (has a $30 mail in rebate which sweetens the deal) Plus, it seems like a better vcard overall.
Mobo: Biostar TA880GU3+ uATX
Proc: AMD Phenom II 960T unlocked/6 cores @ 3.5ghz
Ram: (4) 4gb GSkill 1600mhz (16gb total)
HDDs: (2) 640GB WD AAKS, (1) 750GB Seagate Ext
Vid: Sapphire 6870 1gb DDR5 1000mhz core, 1100 mhz mem
Camera: Pentax K5, I'm not a Canikon fanboy.

personally i would have gone with a full tower atx gamers case, but it should fit, but be warned the nvidia graphics cards gt x series are rather large so ensure the case is big enough before you buy...but everything seems compatible and should work nicely
