Is this a good build? Will it work?

I'm about to buy a computer build, it'll be my first computer that I've put together by myself. I need to know if all of the parts will work together, and if I'm missing any parts I would need for a desktop, and also if it's a good build altogether. I know my only hard drive/ssd is extremely small, but I don't need a big one, because it's not going to be used to store anything. Here is what I have so far:

ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD

HAWKING HWDN2 USB 2.0 Hi-Gain Wireless-150N Dish Adapter

CORSAIR CX600M 600W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-16GXM

AMD FX-8350 Vishera 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor FD8350FRHKBOX

SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD128BW 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

HIS iCooler H777F1G2M Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

  1. What is the intended use of this computer?

    Edit: Also, what is your budget, and where are you buying?

    I'm using this as a sort of a personal server which I will also use for some gaming. It will require a good amount of multitasking capability. My budget is around $1000, and I am going to use newegg probably.

    I forgot to add, the case I am looking at is the LIAN LI Lancool PC-K62 Black 0.8 mm SECC, Plastic + Mesh ATX Mid Tower Computer Case .
  3. Do you live near Microcenter?

    You should get a motherboard that offers better value and use the savings on a better GPU.
    Knock the ram down to 8 Gig and get a more efficient power supply if it will be on full time.
  4. I live about 3 hours from the Philadelphia location.

    I'm much more concerned about cpu/memory capability and reliability than graphics processing, because I want to use it to run around 15 runescape bots simultaneously. Each bot takes around 500 mb ram and 25% of my i5 2.5 ghz dual core cpu.

    Thanks for the tip on the power supply.

    I'm afraid that I know very little about bots and their requirements. That said, if you intend to game and have that much budget, I would try to fit in a 650 Ti at minimum.
  6. The bots really only use cpu and ram, not gpu, although I would like a good gpu for gaming in the future when I have more money. Would you recommend the 650 Ti?

    I wouldn't recommend it, per say, but it's what I tend to consider the minimum for a decent gaming PC. I try not to design with anything lower than a 7870 XT, however, and I make cuts elsewhere to accomodate that. That said, I am primarily versed in single-use gaming PCs.
  8. Ok, well I'm just going to get it as is in regards to the gpu, unless there are cheaper gpu's with more bang for their buck that you can recommend, because I'm a bit low on money for now. Will the motherboard, cpu, and ram I selected work together well?

    What is "it"? The 7770? The 650 Ti?
    Also, I see no parts conflicts in the build.

    I mean the 7770, unless there's something wrong with it, or if it's a bad value for the price. I really have no experience with gpu's.
    Thank you.

    The 7770 is a fine card for its price range, so long as you don't expect max settings at 1080p out of it.
    I'm glad that I could help.

    One final question: do you intend to overclock? If so, you will need a CPU cooler, which may in turn block some types of RAM.
  12. I don't really intend to overclock.
    Thank you so much for your help! I'll probably buy it all tomorrow.

    My pleasure. Happy gaming (and bot...ing?)!

    Just to make sure, you did see giltyler's comment about the motherboard, right? He is correct about you being able to get a much cheaper one which would work about as well.
