well it looks like its time for me to build a new system since im still using the one i build like 6 years ago haha.. i wanna have the price be around $500 - $590 for everything since im low on money

heres all the parts i picked out on newegg.. im not 100 percent sure if all the parts will be compatible with each other soo thats what i need help with!

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition
Motherboard: ASUS M4A87TD/USB3
Graphics Card: EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB"
Power Supply: OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit

total comes out to $559.94.. and yeah i can see im missing a hard drive, case, and DVD drive but i figure i could use my old ones? almost positive i have a mid-tower ATX case soo everything should fit in it.. i only have an 80GB Western Digital (WD800JD-00JRC0) SATA hard drive but that should be fine? and last i have a Sony DVD RW DW-Q28A.

well that processor is now out of stock now, what are the chances of that! ahh... im sketchy about the RAM also; about the compatibility. i think thats about all, much appreciated! :D

Most of your links don't work. But your RAM is compatible. I also suggest a different motherboard based on the AMD 900 series chipset, like the ASUS M5A97 AM3+ AMD 970. For the same amount of money, you can get a better performing graphics card, like the HIS H685FN1GD Radeon HD 6850 1GB, or, if you're willing to spend a bit more, the HIS H687FN1GD Radeon HD 6870 1GB. Your old drives should work, though the hard drive is a bit small. If the hard drive is five years old or more, I would suggest swapping it out due to age.
