First time build


Sep 25, 2011
This is the first time I am making a computer, I don't really know much but I have gotten some stuff together. My true questions are: Is there a graphic card included with my motherboard? Or should I buy one? Are hard drives compatible with pretty much anything? Is it the same with optical drives? How do I know what power supply should I get ( I don't know if this is what makes a PC quiet)? And how do I find the dimensions for the case?

Motherboard: ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 $120
CPU: AMD Black Edition - AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4 GHz Processor $130
RAM: CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 Desktop Memory Model CMX8GX3M2A1333C9? $50
Graphic card: unknown
Hard drive: Western Digital 1 TB Caviar Blue SATA III 7200 RPM 32 MB Cache? $64.99
Optical drive : Lite-On LightScribe 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive IHAS424-98 - Retail (Black) - Lite On $24.99
Power supply: unknown

As far as I know, the CPU, RAM and Hard drive are compatible. I want a powerfullish pc.

Thanks in advance!
