Thanks for your reply, but what exactly needs work? Do some parts not work well together or is it just not a very good computer?

Like for example: Why do you buy a H67 based mobo, if you don't plan to use it's onboard grabhics solution? Buy a P67 for the same price of ~100$ - like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128487 - it's much better, packed with many more extensions...
Also - your i 2600 is an overkill for this system, go for a 2500 and find a better way to spend the rest of your money...
Etc. ...

Great thanks!! I'm planning on using heavier applications and programs in the future so i will probably keep the 2600. i know its overkill, the the other parts are cheaper to upgrade. (so eventually the caliber of the other parts will match the CPU) But the motherboard i will change. That's great! Any other suggestions? is it still compatible?

What heavier applications do you mean? I have some experience with certain types of heavier apps., maybe can help. Like : your 1080p monitor is not good for CAD or 3D, neighter it's good for photo and video editing. I may have some notices about your RAM. Your mouse is for gaming... Can't actually check all your components like coolers, sorry.

Thanks for the replies! Are you positive the parts are compatible? I really don't want to have to return some parts across the border because the shipping is very expensive.
