Everything looks fine to me. But if you can, I would recommend aalso getting an ssd or replacing your hard drive with a hybrid drive.

Would a Hybrid Drive cost more then the regular Hard drive that I have? If so, will it be able to store videos and such just as well?

A hybrid drive is like a combination between a Hard Drive and an SSD. It will be a bit more expensive, but will be much faster(Not quite as fast as an SSD mind you). It has just as much ability to store videos etc.

Ok I will look into it. On another note, will this case be able to fit all of these parts? That is my worst fear buillding a PC. Don't wanna start buying anything until I know it's perfect.

You should have no problems in terms of case size.

From personal experience, I would upgrade your motherboard. Look for the m5a99fx pro or evo boards, should only be $30 more, but are a significant upgrade, offer more cpu power, better vrm cooling.
