Noob PC builder in need of urgent advice....

I am building my first ever pc from scratch and am now in the process of purchasing my parts. Before I press the huy button on I just wanted to check that my spec sounds ok?

Processor: Phenom II x 4 955 3.2ghz
Mobo: MSI 790FX GD70
Hard disk: Samsung spinpoint F1 1TB
Case: Antec twelve hundred
Graphics: XFX xxx DDr5 4890 1gb
PSU: Be Quiet 650w dark pro

Does this sound ok? Can someone please recommend RAM and cooling (if required)

Let me know if I have missed anything!!!

You don't need any additional cooling.
Any of the ddr3 ram on Ebuyer will do you,but this looks good.

All depends on your budget.

I would recommend a Sinclair Spectrum, just do a search it's a high end gaming machine with a really excellent keyboard!
