I was thinking about buying these parts and my friend helped me along the way, and he suggested that I consult with this site so here goes:
(pretty low budget)
Motherboard - ASUS P5P43TD ATX Intel Motherboard [here] - 85$
CPU - Intel Pentium E6300 2.8GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor[here] - 81$
RAM - CORSAIR XMS3 DHX 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory [here] - 115$
Graphics - ASUS GeForce 9800 GT EN9800GT/DI/512MD3 Video Card [here] - 110$
Power Source - Antec BP550 Plus 550W Power Supply [here] - 65$
Hard drive - Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 160GB 3.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s [here] - 40$
Case - Linkworld 313-06-C2228 Computer Case [here] - 21$
CD Drive - SONY Black SATA DVD-ROM Drive [here] - 19$

Basically, I just want to know whether it works, since I've never built a computer yet

If giving suggestions about some things, please keep it near the same price.
TOTAL PRICE~524.91$ (including tax&shipping)

It looks like it should work. You might consider getting an E5300 to save money over the E6300 and getting a larger harddrive. You won't be able to store all that much on only 160GBS especially if you have data such as music and pictures.

1TB is a good pricepoint right now.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148433 here is a similar drive with 6x storage for about twice the price.

If that is out of your budget. still consider a 500GB drive like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822148433.
