I am looking into building my own computer. As this will be my first time I am in need of some help. I need to know if I bought the following parts if they would be compatible. I would also want to know of any ways I could spend less money in the process.

Since you are buying all from Newegg, why not ask them re compatibility?
I wonder if that MB supports core 2 duo, looks like it might not.
What OS are you planning on? If not 64-bit, it won't be able to access 6GB of ram. What other hardware are you going to be using with this (printers, scanners, etc)? Are 64 bit drivers available for all of them? Also, any software you plan on installing needs to be checked for 64-bit compatibility.

Quite a bit of incompatibility.

- DX11 cards should start hitting the market in about... 24hrs~72hrs. ATi 5850/70
- Such DX11 cards at $180~200 will be more than twice the performance of that card and most anything on the market now.
- You have selected an i7 motherboard. $250... for?
- You have no budget amount.
- The difference in gaming performance between a $100 CPU and $200 CPU is about 5~7fps (Frames Per second - and already hitting 70+)

- If you want to spend less... get an AMD with a 785 board.

$170 - X4 CPU : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103696
$ 90 Gigabyte 785 board : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128397 ($13 discount with this CPU)

Windows7 comes out in a few months... which runs excellent with 1-2GB of RAM, far better than Vista. 2 or 4GB of DDR2 (AMD) is about $40 or so.

I'll go with BG-0's saying... buying an intel Socket 775 (Core2) is dying. Its in a phase out mode. While AMD AM3 will be in use for the next 2-4 years.

- You have selected a BD drive, it doesn't burn anything. Also, a good BD drive is $100+ still.
