yeah, links are almost required. We're not going to spend a few hours searching for those products out there just to help you make sure they're compatible....

Everything seems pretty good. If you plan on doing gaming though, you might want to get a little bit better graphics card. That won't play many of the newer games very well.

Well it depends how much you want to spend.


170$-200$: 256mb/512mb ATI Radeon 3850. I don't know if the 512mb is really worth the extra 30$, but I hear it helps especially if you have a bigger screen. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....=Radeon+HD+3850

250$-300$: 512mb Nvidia Geforce 8800GT. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....&name=512MB

I couldn't find any ATI X19X0 series or Nvidia 79X0 series on, but if you look around and can find one for for maybe like the 125$ price range if you want cheaper, that would be your next best bet.

I know the above probably seems expensive, but if you want to play newer games well, I wouldn't settle with less then a 256mb ATI 3850. Also, if you buy a better card now, you won't need to get a new one sooner, to play even newer games.
