Solved

Trying to build first PC could use lots of help please

I hope to buy the parts and have it built by the end of the month but I am not in a rush to do this. I am looking to spend between 500-800 for a mostly surfing the internet and casual gaming computer. I need help on all parts except for monitor and peripherals. I am in the United States and prefer to use newegg.com but the site does not matter much. I have no preference of parts and have don't plan on overclocking. I plan on running at 1024x768. Here are the parts I came up with so far none of these are set in stone.
