Why don't you list the parts that you are interested in 1st. Company and Model numbers.

Look all good. Mobo I think is overkill and you might wanna consider a Intel i5 instead. You'll get better performance for gaming with that. You could save for the i5 by picking a less $$ mobo.

Here is a very useful site for checking if parts are compatible here, it will even warn you if your GPU is too big for the case, or if the case doesn't have front USB 3.0 ports and the board does. When you select your CPU of choice, then it will list all compatible boards when you go to that section. I have used it for a few builds so far and it is such a time saver and has saved me from a few potential problems too.
