Thanks for your help,

I'm wondering what's the difference between Black and Blue. :) thanks.

Blues are more mainstream, blacks are aimed at enthusiasts, but with the tiny price differences, there's really no reason to not get a black. I'm too tired to look up all of the differences, that's something you'd have to do.

Thaaaaanks for the help, really appreciated.

btw, I've never built an AMD machine before, is there any compatibility problems with what I've selected?

Also, Do you know if that Power Supply works on 110 and 240 Volts? (International) ? :)

Looks good, My only thought is about the CPU. Will the AM2+ x4 920/940 work with AM3 motherboard? I think it will, though I'm pretty sure only AM3 CPU's will work with DDR3 RAM. If your going with the AM2+ CPU, get a 790X AM2+ motherboard. Otherwise change to the x3 720BE and get the AM3 mobo. I only suggest this so that there's no compatibility issue later. I belive AM3 CPU's work with AM2+ mobo's, just not the other way around. (AM2+ CPU and AM3 mobo) Anyway, get the Caviar Black 640GB and your good. Hope that helps.
