Hey guys! I'm new to building PC's and my budget is $800. I already have a list of the specs that I want but I'm worried that some parts aren't compatible or the parts won't fit in the case. Any advice is extremely appreciated whether it be that I should replace one for another, that I'm paying too much for something, or that I should put a little more cash into something worth it. Anyway, here are the specs:

AMD FX-6300 ($110)

ASUS M5A97 ($95)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008V9959O/ref=ox_sc_a...

Gigabyte R9 270X GDDR5-2GB ($210)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FONITCE/ref=ox_sc_a...

WD Black 500 GB Desktop Hard Drive ($75)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008968L6M/ref=ox_sc_a...

HyperX 8GB Kit (2x4GB) 1600MHz DDR3 ($80)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00A3VOA3O/ref=ox_sc_a...

Corsair Builder Series CX 500 ($60)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0092ML0MY/ref=ox_sc_a...

NZXT Guardian Black Case ($70)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00434UCDE/ref=ox_sc_a...

2 Cooler Master SickleFlow 120mm ($12)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0046U6DTC/ref=ox_sc_a...

Asus 24x DVD-RW Internal OEM Optical Drive ($21)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00A3VOA3O/ref=ox_sc_a...

This is about ($735). Again, any advice for this build is appreciated.

Hmm, interesting. Out of curiosity why would you recommend caviar blue instead of black? Also, is there a difference between Caviar blue and just blue on Amazon? Or is it the same thing? (Excuse the noobness).
