Hello I am making my first computer and I wanted to make sure that everything I need for it to work and to run smoothly is on this list, for example is the power supply powerful enough for the parts that I will be using? will there be any issues with it fitting inside of the case, things like that.
Here is the link to the parts I will be ordering: http://www.ebuyer.com/lists/list/277815

Thank you :)

You are putting a very cheap power supply in an expensive computer.
Choose a better brand (Seasonic, Corsair, Antec).
Cheap power supplies may give you reliability issues or worse might damage something else when they fail.

60GB SSD is only enough for Windows, not for games. You will find a 240GB SSD much more useful.

LGA2011 system like this is very expensive.
Consider building an LGA 1150 core i7 system instead (different CPU and motherboard, the memory you have already will suit).

If you do stick with this processor and motherboard:
This processor has a 4 channel memory controller, better to choose a 4x4GB kit than a 2x8GB kit
The CPU supports DDR3-1866 memory, you may get some benefit over the DDR3-1600 by using DDR3-1866

Okay I have changed the list to implement the changes you said about, does this look better now?
