Chances of my ordered components from being defective?

So i'm about to order my components in a few days and i've been wondering about the chances of at least of them being defective. So, what are the chances?

  1. What are your components?
  2. The parts i'm planning on ordering are...

    - Intel Core i5 3570K 3.4GHz Socket 1155 6MB Cache
    - Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H Socket 1155 VGA DVI HDMI 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard
    - Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600MHz XMS3 Memory
    - Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo (cpu cooler)
    - Asus GTX 560 Ti
    - WD 1TB Black Desktop Drive
    - Samsung SH-222BB SATA DVD Write Optical Drive
    - Corsair TXM 650W Modular PSU
  3. The parts most likely to be DOA or defective are, the video card, motherboard, HDD and the Ram. How ever in the 12+ years I have been ordering parts/building PC's I have yet to get one that didn't work, or that was DOA/defective, so the chances are very slim. You also need to note that PC parts are built on a Massive scale so expect defects here an there, which are rare in them self's :).
  4. I've been building my own systems for 15+ years, myself, and have never had a DOA or defective component.

    It happens, but not often (certainly not as often as Newegg "Feedback" would lead you to believe).
  5. I have had a single HDD bad but that is it.
  6. I've had a dead refurbished GTX470, spent hours before I finally believed that it was DOA. I had one I could compare it to, and the replacement was fine. Other than that out of maybe 50-60 other components i've ordered over 10 years there has been nothing.
