Hey guys! I'm getting ready to put in my order for the parts of my first build EVER.
I've gotten lots of ideas from other people's builds and this is what I came up with.
I just wanted to post my build on here to make sure everything is compatible, and to see if you guys have any recommendations.

Processor and Motherboard: Intel Core i5 2500K Quad Core CPU & MSI P67A-C43 DDR3 Motherboard

RAM: Corsair XMS3 CMX4GX3M2A1600C9 4GB DDR3 2X2GB DDR3-1600 CL 9-9-9-24 Core i5 Dual Channel Memory Kit

Graphics Card: MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II OC 880MHZ 1GB GDDR5 Dual DVI Mini-HDMI DX11 PCI-

Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB 3.5IN SATA 6GB/S With NCQ Internal Hard Drive OEM

If some of these parts are not compatible with eachother or the case

Its all compatible , and will make a great gaming computer

You can save a bit of money by using a 600 - 650 watt power supply which will be plenty

Yeah, you should downgrade your psu. Maybe spend a bit more $$ to get the gtx 570 instead of the gtx 560, and if not, 8GB of RAM will last you longer than 4GB. Neither of these upgrades are mandatory, though... It's good as it is. Doing what's above could make it slightly better. :)
