So I'm almost ready to start building my first gaming PC, and I'm just wanting to make sure that everything I have here will be compatible and work well with each other (no bottlenecking components etc)

Case -
Corsair Carbide Series 200R Compact ATX Computer Case

Motherboard -
AsRock FM2A75 PRO4 Motherboard

Ram -
Corsair CMZ8GX3M2A1600​C9 Vengeance 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600 Mhz

AMD FX-6350 Black Edition CPU

Corsair Builder Series CXM 600W Modular 80 PLUS Bronze

Storage -
Seagate Barracuda 3.5 inch 500GB 7200 RPM

Graphics Card -
EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 Superclocked ACX 2GB GDDR5 Graphics Card

Everyone has been really helpful so far with planning this build, hope you can keep it up! :)

Get a asus m5a970 r2.0 or a asrock 970 extreme 4
Both are good
And get a fx 6300 instead of 6350 as 6300 can be o.c.ed to match 6350

And a xfx 550w would be much better than cx600 change it
