So, I have decided to make my own computer since I realize it's a little bit cheaper and easier to upgrade later. I wanted to be 100% that all of these things would work together and fit together in the certain case. I realize that these items are not the best, but I had a certain price limit of about $600, so let me know what you think. Also, if you have a suggestion for any better item and could stay under my limit, please let me know :) 

Case:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
HardDrive:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Power Supply:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
RAM:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
MotherBoard:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Processor:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Graphics Card:

So, please tell me if you think that these things could work together. I will also be running on Windows 7, by the way. Thanks.

Yes they will all fit together. If you can afford to add an SSD in I would but I know it's tight.

Thanks! And I wish I could afford the SDD :/  Also, thank you for the input on the Power supply. I hope to get more comments to see if I can get any cheaper or better upgrades to any of my current items.

Wow! Thank you so much for that list it's amazing! The final total seemed a little bit more, but that's not too big of an issue. Again, thanks so much, you were such a big help.

Yeah I spent a little more on the CPU and included an optical drive so that's where the added expense comes from. We also saved some by cutting some unnecessary features from the motherboard and went with a slightly cheaper (but still very nice) case.

Also, everything is going to match really well and have a nice, clean, all black appearance.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Don't feel obligated, but are there any promo codes you know of or can find for Newegg? Obtaining to the items selected or like a % off or Money off. Thanks.

Newegg will typically tell you on each item if there is a promo code or not for it right above the listing in green. They don't really offer mass promo codes that take 10% off the entire order or anything.

Ok thanks, I found one for the Processor, which was good.

If you live close to a microcenter they usually have better prices on cpu's and motherboards.

Good luck with the build! Let us know how it turns out. Also, if you wouldn't mind selecting a "best answer" as it helps those of us who post here out a lot. Thanks!

Hey JD. So, my dad actually said no on me getting the computer then... But my birthday is in 5 days, so hopefully things will change. I added a keyboard and mouse now and the total has actually come down to less than it was before. The new total is $598. Idk what happened, but somehow it's cheaper now. Also, I get FarCry 3 with the Graphics Card, so that's cool. The only thing is, are you sure there is nothing else I will need to build it? And how will I install Windows to it. I have a Windows 7 key, but not an actual disc. Is there any way to install it with just the key?

Actually, I realize I am just going to have to buy a disc :/  I am going to go with Windows 8 I think. For this system, which is better. 64 or 32 bit?

Oh, and I should also ask which is better for gaming. 7 or 8?

Hello again.

You're going to want 64 bit Windows 8. There is no difference between the two in gaming.
