Budget is about 700-800 willing to spend a lil more if needed
i have a 1600x900 Computer monitor.

also one more thing when i go to the pcpartpicker page it says "Compatibility Notes

ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP ATX LGA1155 Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the NZXT Source 210 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports." is this of concern?

Anyone have some suggestions on how i could improve upon this if needed?

Quite a nice build for the budget you listed. If possible I would include an aftermarket CPU cooler even if you aren't planning to do any overclocking since it will help extend your CPU's typical lifetime as well as keep it at low temps when gaming. For the usb header, I am not quite sure about the compatibility with the USB 2.0 port on a USB 3.0 header, so I would try doing a bit of research before choosing the case. Lastly, if possible, try to purchase all your components in one location/website since it will help reduce times of RMA if you encounter DOA on any components.

Cheers XD.

All it means is that the motherboard has a header for usb 3, but the case doesn't have usb 3 ports. In others words just don't use the header. But it might also mean that the motherboard doesn't have a usb 2 header, which means you won't be able to use the front usb ports on the case (not a big deal but it isn't fun plugging usb's into the back all the time). It is probably the first one, so there is no problem but you should double check unless you don't care about front usb ports.
