I'm wondering if this build is good to go

Is this build good to go? (Like is there any incompatibility or something wont fit it the case)
This is my first build.

  1. Best answer
    Everything looks compatible.

    My thoughts:

    - If you want an after market cpu cooler, get something better than that SilenX...it's basically another stock cooler. Check out the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099) only $10 more and it will be way better at cooling. (And you don't need to buy extra thermal paste, it will come with the cooler)

    - I wouldn't trust my components to that Kingwin PSU, it's not a quality unit. Spend a couple extra bucks and get something higher quality: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027 The CX series isn't the best of the best, but it's a budget unit that's better than that Kingwin.

    - Buy two sticks of RAM so they can run in dual channel. Here's a budget 4GB kit with free shipping: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820211409
