    I've decided to do my 1st build soon based on a quad core amd black edition chip , 4gb ram , 625w psu saphhire , HAF case or coolermaster 370 , 500gb hdd samsung , sony optical drive , Gigabyte Mobo , Venom cpu cooler or h50/70.

    Also need win 7 64 bit and keyboard and mouse

    Is all the above compatible for this build?

    All i need now is a gpu , If there are new cards coming out could you let me know the prices on them please and when they are due.

    Let me know if this is a good 1st build.

    Since the rest of the system is fairly powerful, I'd suggest you go for a faster 7200rpm HDD instead of the WD Green model. Ideally if budget will stretch, keep the Green and add a small SSD to run the OS from.
