First of all, hello to everyone here. Been browsing these forums for a couple days, and there really seems to be some smart people here. Anyways, I am going to be building a gaming PC, looking to spend about $1,700 max. I've created what, to the best of my knowledge, seems to be a nice machine. However, I am pretty new at building my own computer, as I have only ordered pre-builts before. So I'm a little scared about compatibility, everything actually fitting and working, heat management ect. I'm going to put a list below of everything that I am goign to buy, and was wondering if I could hear some feedback. Will everything work correctly? Nothing is going to melt is it? For that price, are there any items I could improve (i.e Brand X has something for 200$ which is better then Brand Y that also costs $200)?

just a suggestion that many people will probably say... get a different power supply. The ones that come with the cases arn't worth the chance of frying all your hardware.

One suggestion of one you could use is this:
Antec TRUEPOWERII TPII-550
