My new new Computer BUILD! Help thread

I decided its about that time again, TIME TO BUILD A COMPUTER!

So far I have the fastest speed i7 which I got for $100, a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...Tpk=P7P55%20LX motherboard, and a BFG GTX 260 video card.

All I need now are
Memory:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227289
CD/DVD rom drive:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827100058 ??
Hard Drive:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...=Caviar%20Gren
PSU:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341023
Case:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-074-_-Product ??

Help me! My only limits are I have $400 left to spend and I only want 4gb of ram and a 500gb HDD. GO!

$300 for those. If you really want a ponsy 500gig hdd you can get one of the other WD for like $55 so then you're only around $255 or whatever. Case, you choose that yourself on what you specifically need. Same goes for dvd drives which are like $30-40 for a pioneer one. Or see if you can afford to toss in a bluray drive instead or something. They're like anywhere between $60-120. You can get a bluray burner for like $150 which is pretty cool.

The thermaltake case is a flimsy one. I didnt like that one myself. Might aswell pay the extra $10 and buy the antec one it copied itself off.

We can decide if this holds true IF you get SupCom 2 on release day.

And Con I already got the Caviar Green drive at my job it was a steal at $50. It will also last longer because it lowers its spinning speed when the HDD is IDLE.

Also, I have the Antec Nine Hundred case already with my current computer, it barely fits the GTX 260 card. I had to finaggle a shitload of cables to get it to fit. The V9 on the other hand will do fine as my friend has it and the card has extra room.

You're only having trouble because you wont move your hdd outs of the way. I have that case and theres shitloads of room for it.

My HDD was right below my CD-rom drive, the card was right next to the plastic infront of the middle front fan!!!
