    I'm not looking to do intense gaming right now, but I want to chose components that will give me a chance to upgrade later down the line. Do all the components work together, I have checked and the only thing I'm unsure of is the RAM compatibility. Thanks

    I think with his budget he won't be able to afford a SB build so might as well ignore that option.

    I'd suggest changing to this HDD:

    Samsung F3 500GB

    Also if you can afford it, switch the case+psu you've suggested for this combo:

    Coolermaster 430 + 500W psu

    Shouldn't add too much to the total price. :)

    To save everyone a headache here is a list of his current choices:

    Processor: AND Athlon II x3 455 (3.1Ghz)


    Motherboard: Asus M4A88T-M 880G Socket AM3


    RAM: Corsair 4GB (2x2) DDR3


    Hard Disk Drive: WD 320GB Caviar Blue

    Case: Nova Panther


    Powersupply: Corsair 430w CX PSU


    Optical Drive: LiteON 24x DVD±RW


    Wireless Adapter: Tenda Wireless N300 PCI
    Adapter



    Hope this helps people


    My recommendations is a better case (antec 300?), a different hard drive (samsung F3?) and power supply, you could drop down the cpu to an AMD Athlon 250 dependant on if you really need a third core?

    I think the case looks OK - if you were going to spend extra I'd get a bigger hard drive - I'd go with 1TB if possible - the samsung F3 is excellent.

    I'd drop the case and go with a Cooler Master Elite 335 or 430.
    Also, for the same money you could have a Wester Digital 500GB Caviar Blue.
    Change the LiteON to a Samsung SH223
