As this is my first build I just want somebody to take a look at what I've picked out and make sure it all looks good and everything is actually compatible. Or some other noob thing I might have overlooked :p

Thanks for the feedback! I spoke to a few friends and browsed forums/reviews a bit more and ordered the parts. I'll update my op with what I chose.
