I've made the selections based on both performance and reliability, based on user reviews. The computer will probably end up either dual-booting Windows 8 and Ubuntu (not sure on which version yet) or triple-booting Windows 7, Windows 8, and Ubuntu.
My main questions were, does anyone with more experience than I know of any incompatibilities between these parts? Also, what ports would I find on the back of the case? It looks like I'll need to get an adapter for my monitor, as the mobo doesn't have a VGA connection (alternatively, I could pick up a cheap 20-23" monitor.
Any suggestions/advice/problems that a more experienced builder could give me? It'll be much appreciated
