Building first gaming computer! Advice needed!

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:

    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).
