Could you please post the components but not copying from the other website? If you must copy, please copy to notepad first otherwise the formatting is all wrong and the content is lost.

Cheers

I just want to be sure that all the parts like the RAM and the motherboard are compatible before I go ahead and buy the parts.

The computer will be used for 3d modling, animation and game design as well as school work and playing games like Crysis but this is all on a tight budget so if you can recomend any places I can get these parts cheap that would be helpful
Thanks

Yes the parts will all work together. Pricespy will give you a good general idea of where to get the bits. Places like qmb are reasonably priced generally.

Try to get much as possible from the one place - saves on courier/postage :)

The E8400 is a good CPU. I have one and love it.
If you're looking at doing graphic design and the likes, you may want to go for a quad core, as a lot of those applications benefit from the additional cores.
