I'm trying to put together a PC relatively around 600-700 dollars. I slapped together some parts on PC part picker. Is there anything out there (staying in budget) that could make this build better? Is there anything wrong with the parts I have now? are all of the parts compatible? Thanks for the feedback in advance! This is my first build by the way. Here is the list: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/jrw456/saved/wgCD4D
