I have a HDD, keyboard, mouse, speakers and monitor from the computer i'll be replacing. I will be looking to purchase the parts next week (when i get home from work, i work offshore).

My first question is, is everything on this list compatible? I've done a fair amount of research and I believe that everything is correct, but its better to be safe then sorry :D . I'm pretty confident in the parts on the list, however, I'm also open to suggestions if anyone has them.

Next I'm curious if anyone has a good website for setting up an ssd(bootdrive/game storage:wow and skyrim mainly atm)/HDD(storage) combo? or a guide, tutorial... anything? as I'm new to this set up any advice would be great. I dont have the specs on the HDD, wont be able to get them until i get home, so if thats an important bit of info, I'm sorry.

Thats all I can think of for now, thanks in advance and I'll update with anything I think of.
