Keyboard, Mouse, Monitor, are all figured out. If I missed anything, please let me know. And also, I'm not looking for what I could upgrade this to, Im wondering whether or not this is all compatible. One Last Question: Could someone recommend me speakers for under $50?

May also get liquid cooling system in the future, so would this PC build be compatible with liquid cooling as well?

Looks compatable minus a few things....

1) The ram you got (12gb 3 x 4gb). That is a waste. Your MOBO is set up to dual channel, and giving it a third ram without dual channel can actually slow you down(if im remember correctly). Honestly if your buying soon, you can get 8gb of ram for like 40 bucks right now and you shouldn't need more then 8 anyway.

Also you could upgrade to 16 and fix it as wel

2) If you dont mind spending a little bit more:

is a much better HDD imo and it benchmarks higher as well

3)Everything else looks good

I understand you werent looking to upgrade but I posted this up anyway.

Ok, I'll downgrade to 8GB. I was reading this computer building article and it said: The more RAM the better, so you don't have to upgrade in the future. After downgrading, I'll upgrade to 1TB.

Coolermaster extreme power PSUs are not that great. Google them and read the reviews. I would recommend a Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, PCP&C, or Enermax PSU.
