Hi everyone. I'm new here and I'm looking for a little bit of help to make sure all of these parts will work together. This is my first time building but I think that all of these parts will fit together.

Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ955FBGMBOX

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL

SAPPHIRE 100312-3SR Radeon HD 6950 Dirt3 Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support

SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold ((SS-650KM Active PFC F3)) 650W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD

Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

I am also considering a SSD to run OS off of. Thoughts?

Hi there, welcome. I have almost the same setup as you, apart from the GPU and Memory. I have a Radeon HD6850, and G.Skill Ripjaws 8Gb (PC312800). I can say my system runs very smooth and fast. It plays Crysis2 a treat at 1600x1200, with all the eye candy and tesselation. On the note regarding the SSD drive I would. I have a Corsair F60 SSD as my system OS boot drive, with some apps on and two 500Gb 7200 SATA Drives for everything else.
