My first build, meant to be a Gaming PC. I was shooting for around $1k, ended up being a little under (yay). I just want to make sure that there are no obvious compatibility issues (dont think there are) and I didn't make any terrible choices in the build.

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157250
CPU&video card (combo): http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.662467
RAM:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231428
HDD:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148697
Case:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147153
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817815009

I'm also looking at two mobos (comparision page) that seem to be almost the same, but one is significantly cheaper. I can't figure out why one is much cheaper than the other and if its worth going with the cheaper one.

the i5 2500k is the best gaming cpu on the market it runs on par with the 2600k because games dont use hyperthreading

put the money you saved to a better gpu- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

here is a better motherboard for the money- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... -the other motherboard is a p67 that is why it is cheaper

here is psu from a quality brad- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
