I posted about 5 weeks back about a build but ended up spending $1500 on a new exhaust system for my car so the computer had to wait a few weeks. I'm ready to get it now and wanted some feedback on how this setup looks. This will be my first time building my own pc, I need to replace my 3 year old cyberpower and after the headaches I've had with this machine over the years, I'll never buy another prebuilt computer again so I wanted to give building my own a shot.

Like I said this will basically be used for gaming and normal internet use and thats about it. I did want to hook up dual monitors to this so I was wondering if the mobo and gpu are compatible for that and if the psu is enough to handle a dual monitor setup.
Also I need this to be able to connect to my wifi network as my modem/router is hooked up to the computer downstairs and this computer will be in my bedroom so I'm guessing I need a wireless adapter?
FIRST OFF! the motherboard is not compatible with the cpu. it is an amd motherboard with a intel cpu... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... that is a good motherboard. AS for dual monitors the gpu and motherboard are perfectly fine for that. the rams all good, and with the powersupply there is room for 2 6870s, so it is looking quite beastly apart from the motherboard error.
Thanks for pointing that out, just a stupid mistake on my part. If I switch the mobo to the correct one then, everything else looks good then? Also whats the easiest way to get wireless access, install a card or just use one of those plug in adapters?
