I am building a new PC for a client and even though I've checked and double checked, I just wanted to confirm that these parts are all compatible, so where better to ask then Geekzone :D

CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 630 2.8GHz Socket AM3 Box
Motherboard: ASRock N68-S3
RAM: Crucial DDR3 PC10600/1333MHz CL9 2GB
Case: Easteck ET-3381BS 420W (Black)
Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS324
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Green WD7500AADS 32MB 750GB

The budget is $530 max, so that's what I could find for that price. Can anyone point out possible compatibility problems with this setup or do you think it'll run fine?

Looks all good, apart from the case/PSU combo, I wouldn't trust that PSU as far as I could throw it(probably pretty far because it'll be light and cheaply made) Even one of the Foxconn case/PSU combos would be more reliable or the Aywun A1-602, slightly more expensive(by $10) but Aywun at least make alright PSUs

If your client was going to upgrade his graphics card, I'd recommend upgrading to a 520w branded PSU, say a Silverstone, Corsair, Thermaltake, Zalman. At least if you warned him that he'd be best off to upgrade his PSU if he upgrades that, then I think that'd cover all your bases :)
