New to computer building. Will these parts work together? What else do I need?

I am brand new to computer building and I need advice from experts. I have a list of parts I have put together myself for a gaming computer. I want to know that all of these parts will work together, and that there is nothing I have overlooked or don't know. I have never build a computer before or so much as upgraded a part.

Motherboard - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1K65U37368

HDD - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822236345&cm_re=500gb_harddrive-_-22-236-345-_-Product

RAM - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148544&recaptcha=pass

PSU - https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16817139210

Will these parts work together, and are there any other parts I need? I am debating whether or not I need an optical drive although I will probably end up getting one eventually I don't think I need one for now. And how much better audio quality would I get from adding a sound card?

  1. This MB, don't get a ICX MB.

    Other than that it's fine.

    Ok why not an ICX?
  3. Why such old tech? You could get the latest for about the same price,

    Kept it all at Newegg since you link that,but if you're open to other vendors is that good too.Rebates are not in this total so some money can still be made back if you can make use of that.
    Some faster ram like 3000/3200mhz would be nice,but would add to the price.Like,

    That is extremely useful, and is really what I was looking for when I added this post.
    I do, for the most part, want to buy everything from the same website to save on shipping costs, unless you know of a source that can get me a part that is cheaper including shipping (i.e. If I am going to spend $700 on parts and $30 on shipping for a total of $730... when I can find parts at another website that will total $650 plus $30 shipping, or $700 with free shipping). Basically I am going for the most bang for my buck and so far buying everything at Newegg has been the best deal, but I am open to better deals if anybody has suggestions.

    I can't be sure about shipping, i can only go by the info the pcpartpicker provides with that which is included in the list.Must say that most with newegg seems to be free shipping,can't say for other vendors. As it looks is Amazon prime a premium "subscription" that costs a monthly pay of about $10 so costs extra (has it's benefits,but costs imo alot).

    I have two things on my mind,

    2)
    The i3 is already a pretty solid cpu which in gaming would have benefit from the faster ram,but wouldn't be as "futureproof" as the i5.With the i3 system could you add the gtx 1060 6gb version and still be comfortably under the $750 mark,also get that psu you wanted.The i3 build would look like this with changes,

    No faster ram since $20 over the price of this and i wonder if it's worth it.Talking about faster ram,you could also put 16gb of faster ram in that first build i showed and be under budget,
    https://pcpartpicker.com/product/tMvZxr/gskill-memory-f43000c15d16gvgb
    is newegg Marketplace so don't know what that will ad in costs or if this is the same as Newegg.Shipping seems free.

    You see alot of options and i'm even debating with myself what the best option is. Performance wise and looking at the future probably the i5 build since people tend to upgrade the other parts more easily and parts chosen are still decent for some time,just ram might become limiting, enough AAA games are pushing 8gb system usage.
    A review where the i5 and i3 are shown so you can judge for yourself what difference there is,
    https://www.techspot.com/review/1499-intel-core-i3-8100-i3-8350K/page3.html
    look at your monitors refresh rate as well,if 60hrz is the i3 often way above it.Can google some more reviews of course. ;)


    Check what delivery costs yourself before buying. When ordering should that be shown before pushing the final button,well here with shops it does.:).
