Grand Total is $1,908.87

All of these parts I have taken from the NewEgg website. I have provided links to each item to make it easier for people to check specifications if they so choose. I am hoping to get a few replies here.

I am not really looking for parts advice, as I feel these are the things I have decided on already and done some research on. My budget is $2000. What I am asking for is to just tell me if all these parts are fully compatible with each other so when I actually assemble this it will work. The things I am most worried about are if the motherboard has all the proper connections for these parts. Sometimes in the part specs, its hard for me to tell. Anyway, I would also appreciate it if you could tell me if my system will bottleneck while playing games and what parts are causing it. This is my first ever build and I want it to go as smooth as possible.

Thanks in advance to people that reply,

What kind of "work" are you doing?
Don't get 12gb of ram. There's no such thing as triple channel. Get either 2x4gb or 2x8gb, depending on how intense work you're doing, for dual channel.
For an extra $10, you can upgrade your SSD for about 40% more capacity with the Crucial M4: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=20-148-...
A GTX680 isn't worth the money. If you really feel like dishing out another $100 for a bit more performance over the gtx670, I can't stop you. For most people, the small performance increase isn't worth it.
Do you plan on SLI? If you do, the psu is fine. If you don't drop the psu down to a 550w.

Duo memory channel works in pairs. So either use 2x4G or 4x4G. The single stick of 4G memory in your 12G setup will lag.

I do not plan on SLI, but I am purchasing a number of accessories and my case a 100 W fan controller. I know it is a little overkill but I want it to be. If this thing blows the PC is done for. As for the memory I will probably go with 2 x 16gb. Thanks for the help

The psu is fine. You are not going to save much money going down to a 550 watter, but spending a liittle more on a 128GB ssd makes sense. It's the sweet spot for value.
