I was considering buying the parts I just listed above and be using the computer for almost anything like gaming, watching HD movies, internet browsing and such.

I assume cost isn't a factor since you have an i7 listed. I suggest getting a larger full-ATX case in order to fit the GPU properly. Other than that you're set, though you still need to buy an OS. You can also download the release candidate of Windows 7 for free and use that until the OS is released.

So basically those parts are good to go for without having any problems with building the computer. Sorry to be asking because I just don't want to end up buying it and having to return it or something because I made some mistake in choosing the wrong parts that does not fit properly with other parts as this is going to be my first time building my computer.
