    [Help] Building my first rig, need compatability help

    Hey, I've been interested in building a rig on my own for about four years but haven't had the time nor money to do so. I have been saving my money up and now have come up with a little less than 2000 dollars. I've spent a few days researching and picking out parts and I would just like to get advice on the compatability of these parts and on whether or not this rig is powerful enough.

    Here's what I'm working with:

    Hard drive: Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

    Nice choise, they will all work perfectly with each other. Though I would recommend you try to find this 570 model insted. Products :: Gainward GeForce® GTX 570 1280MB "Phantom"
    That card have INSANE cooling, almost comparable to watercooling. I have it myself, and I'm running Skyrim and Gta IV with everything on max. 1920x1080 and anti alising set to x8. The fans are on 45% speed and the temperature never goes above 60c and I can't even hear the fans running. I acutally had to check if they were working when I first installed the card. They were so silent. The Gainward 570 shouldn't be that much more expensive, maybe 25-30$ but it's totaly worth it if you can't stand a loud computer.

    By the way. Here's some great case fans incase you need some. They're built to focus the airflow straight forward insted of spreading it out, while being very quiet. Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE AP121 120mm Case Fan
    Molested myself and got convicted.
