I am quite new to this, and I am getting help from a good friend in what I should be getting. But what I'm wondering is, are these parts compatible with each other? And should I be changing any parts for better Gaming Performance? (I will be playing Battlefield 3, Skyrim, Just cause 2, etc). A quick response would be AMAZING. Thanks!

you have an overkill on ram. 8 gigs will do fine
you have picked last gen gtx 580 while the gtx 680 is out on the market right now

it sounds like you have copied and pasted a list from some pre-build webside.
you can order all of these parts online (www.newegg.com) and build the system with your buddy.. you are paying some dude to put these parts together while you could do it at home and get a better understanding of how your computer works

Much appreciated, thanks! Also, the reason behind me getting a 580 rather than the newer 680 is simply the price difference, way too much! Any who, I assembled this on the website Called CyberPowerPC, and the total, where its at, is just under $1300. Do you have any suggestions for the graphics card? I was told 1.5gb for a graphics card is quite low, will that effect anything gameplay-wise? Thanks again
