Answer:
Make sure you get a good power supply like this:

most PSU's that come with computer cases are garbage, the exception being mid-range antec cases that include their Earthwatts series PSU's.

otherwise, your proposed system looks just fine, although you could save some money and get a quad core Athlon II instead of the Phenom X4.

Since this is my first building, I want to build a computer that will be easy and simple to build. will this configuration be okay for a beginner who knows almost nothing about building a computer?

even though the memory says Specifically Designed to compatible with Intel Core i5 and Core i7 for Intel P55 motherboard, would i have any trouble with it?
