I am building my own gaming PC. The build I plan on following is this:

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit (Might use Windows XP Home Premium 32- or 64- Bit)
Thermaltake SopranoRS VG7000BWS Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
ASRock P67 PRO3 SE LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor
CORSAIR Vengeance 4GB (1 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory
NVIDIA Geforce GTX 560 Ti
Thermaltake 600W PSU
Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 200GB HDD Model ST3200822AS (HDD I took from other PC)
HP DVD Writable/CD-RW Drive Model GCA-4166B (Took from PC as well)

Will all this work together? By this I mean will there be an compatibility issues?

Ultimate only if ya use BitLocker, Pro if ya have 5 or PC's on network, Home in single installations.

Suggest a more modern case w/ USB 3 front port (i.e Antec 902V3)

Suggest a MoBo w/ 3 year warranty (Asus P8P67 Pro)

Suggest getting the CPU for $20 off in newegg combo w/ MoBo unless you have cheaper walk-in option.

Suggest 2 x 4GB DDR3-1600 at $55

Suggest 900 Mhz version of 560 Ti w/ larger coolers

Suggest XFX Core Edition 750 so ya can add 2nd GFX card in future

Suggest not using that ancient HD .... 7200.12 is current version (7200.10 had firmware issues)
