New build, will it work?

This is my first time building a computer. I think I've got it all figured out but I probably have no clue. Will these work together and have I picked the right stuff. The plan for the computer is mostly audio production related and a little gaming. Plan to run Windows 7 OS.

  1. looks good. your missing a power supply, optical drive , case
  2. good build..
  3. Not a bad little build, I have essentially the same system. I'm pretty happy with it. Although there are stronger video cards than the 550 TI in the same ballpark price range (something I didn't realize at the time)


    Even better than better:
  4. You forgot the most important part of the computer.....power supply?
