Hi, I am building my first computer and I need a little help making sure the parts I picked will work with each other. As you can probably tell I am not interested in overclocking.

Thanks for your help folks.

Intel Core i7-4770 - 3.4GHz - Socket 1150 Quad-core, includes cooler

MSI GeForce GTX 780 Gaming - 3GB - PCI-E DVI / HDMI / DisplayPort.

ASUS H87-PLUS - Socket 1150 - ATX Intel H87, 4xDDR3, SATA600 / USB3.0
The site has many h87 versions, not sure which one to pick.

Seasonic M12II Bronze Evo Edition - 620 Watt Fully modular

Western Digital Blue - 1TB 3.5", SATA600, 7200rpm, 64MB

Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB - PC3-12800 - DIMM DDR3, 1600MHz, 1.5V, CL9, 2x4GB

Fractal Design Define R4 Window Midi-Tower, 2xUSB2.0 / 2xUSB3.0 / Audio

Asus DRW-24F1ST - DVD Burner SATA

Put your parts into a list on - this will let you know if there are incompatibilities, and help you identify possible alternatives and/or improvements to parts you've chosen

My one suggestion would be to try an SSHD instead of your HD - it will give you SSD speed OS and app loads

Looks fine. Everything is compatible and balanced. Your motherboard is good. Asus is one of the top motherboard manufacturers.
