Hi guys hoping someone can help. :) 

I'm building my first computer and I just got a few questions for the parts I have picked out. I've been looking,picking,adding, and removing for a couple of days this week and I think I'm happy with what I got and well this is what I want you guys to help me with if possible.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3cKVA

1. Are all this parts compatible with each other? I don't want to fry something and have to replace it lol(if that happens)

2.Should I keep the mother board that I have select at the moment or should I go for this one that I also like http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-motherboard-b85g41pcma... I'm still deciding which one to get.

3.Should I stick with the cpu I have (4440) or is it worth it to go for the i5 4670

4.I know the video card is not the greatest but I might upgrade later on depending what games I decide to play. please keep in mind that I'm mostly a console gamer(Don't hate me). So I buy modern games on console, I just like playing pc exclusive games on computer like league of legends which I record with fraps(Only record league), FF14 online and some indie games here there(Like amesia).

Any help would be great I'm trying to buy this parts this weekend and Hopefully have it done by next weekend(I cant wait) and I'm trying to keep it on the low 900s, 950 is ok if I get the i5 4670.

Ps: Don't pay attention to the total minus the mail-in rebate I might not even do it,might forget or something and some people say they take weeks, months and some say they don't even get it, so I dont look at the whole total.

If that's all you're going to do with it, I would suggest you get the i3-4130 and get a better GPU. It definitely wouldn't be worth it to get the 4670. The 4130 would be able to handle any GPU you get, and something like a GTX 660 would be much better for recording while gaming. Other than that, it all looks good :) 

Not gonna hate on you for console gaming, just as long as you accept that PC gaming is physically better :p  lol

I only record league of legends so I dont think I need a powerfull of a video card .Which gtx 660 would you recommend theres like 20 of them lol.

I know gaming in computer can be cheaper and I know is better but I like my console too =) and I do alot gaming in my computer too and spend a lot time on it editing my league games and such but I just play the big games on console...for now ;)

I know, I was just messing with you lol

I recommended the 660 since recording takes a good toll on the GPU. This one would be perfect: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-video-card-gtx660dc2o...

This will get you better, more stable frame rates, which will help recording, and higher settings for better visuals lol
lol no worries, I'm slowly transferring to only pc gaming. Thanks for the help and ill check the video card out.
Thanks again.
