Hi everyone, the following is my first PC build, so please be nice. Thanks. There are two main reasons why I am posting this. First, I'm not even sure if this build would work, as in if it will fit in my case, if the CPU is with the correct motherboard, etc. I think I got most of it down though. The main problem with this is I'm wondering if my GPU will fit in my case. The second reason is to ask more advanced builders if my PC will bottleneck. Also, my budget is <$1000. Anyway, here is my build:

CPU : Intel Core i5-4570 Haswell 3.2GHz LGA 1150
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

MoBo : MSI B85-G41 PC Mate LGA 1150 Intel B85
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case : Cooler Master HAF 912
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU : Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256 - bit
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM : 2 sticks of 4GB RAM - G.SKILL Ripjaws X DDR3 1600
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU : Corsair CX430M 430W 80 Plus Certified BRONZE
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

SSD : SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 2.5" 120GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Hard Drive : Western Digital Blue 500GB 7200RPM SATA 6.0GB/S
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Optical Drive : Simple LG Optical Drive. This is no problem :)

If I need to add more info on my parts, I can, just post below.


EDIT : I'm not planning on Overclocking, if you didnt figure that out already.
EDIT2 : I might switch out the sapphire radeon 7870 for a sapphire radeon 7950. I would also like to see which one you would recommend for me.
EDIT3 :

I decided to modify my build :

CPU : Intel Core i5-4570 Haswell 3.2GHz LGA 1150
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

MoBo : MSI B85-G41 PC Mate LGA 1150 Intel B85
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GPU : Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384 - bit

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Hard Drive : Western Digital Blue 500GB 7200RPM SATA 6.0GB/S
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Optical Drive : Simple LG Optical Drive. This is still no problem :)

In case your wondering, here is my monitor, keyboard, and mouse:

Monitor : ASUS VS Series VS238H-P Black 23"
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Keyboard : Perixx PX-2000

Get this card

;) 

Otherwise it looks good to me, that PSU is on the low side but if you aren't planning on upgrading anything it is fine.

after the removal of the 3.5’’ HDD cage, yes, otherwise, no, you'll need a bigger case ;) .
