Hello,
I'm ready to start my first custom build. I'm willing to learn as I go, but below is a list of componets that I plan on using in the system.
What I'm wondering, before I place the order, is if all the components are compatible with one another. Mainly concerned with the RAM, MB and Video card. Can I use these together?

Here are the details:

HEC 6AR6BS2F Black / Silver 0.8mm SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case X-Power 585W
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core
Foxconn ELA LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard
CORSAIR DOMINATOR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066
MSI N9600GT-T2D512-OC GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3250410AS 250GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
SAMSUNG 22X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe Black SATA Model SH-S223Q

why not use an X48 motherboard - then you will not be overclocking the memory bus.

Foxconn BlackOps X48 LGA 775 Intel X48 ATX Intel Motherboard is being sold by Newegg for about the same price.

Memory is tricky - you never know unless the MB site lists it or find a review using the exact same memory.

Good luck on your build

Thanks, I'll look into the memory and MB recommendation.

Other than those, are the other components compatable with each other. CPU, Graphics Card, etc.

I looked up the HEC case and X-power 585 power supply and it's rated at only 350W despite its name - your video card needs 400W itself. This info comes from the HEC web site itself. A number of their PSs have lower power than the numeric part number would make you think. it might be a series of typos. With a high end motherboard like this I would spend more on the power supply to be safe.

Thanks for the info man. Good stuff. Those are the types of "look outs" that make this an excellent forum.
Thanks again for everything. I'm sure once I order and receive the goods, I will be asking a few more questions when I start assembling.
Later.
