I'm trying to put together a decent rig for gaming, I've never done anything like this before with computers so all this is fairly new to me. Please let me know if these parts will be compatible and also let me know your opinion about any of these parts. My budget is $1,200-1,300 and right now the total for all these parts from newegg is $1,234.90.Thanks alot!

Sounds like a very solid system!
I like the Smilodon case because it opens up like those old toasters..
My son has one of the early ones and it's about 8years old and so easy to change out parts!
One thing to plan very carefully is the wiring and cable management.
