Hey! I'm not new to computers or tech in any way, but I've never actually built my own. I've chosen my main parts, but I don't know if they will all fit together or are all compatible.

So, my long list of questions begin.

Will the MOBO fit in the case properly? (Both are ATX, so I think so, but i'm not sure)
Will my MOBO have enough space for the GPU, or will the GPU block some of the slots?
Will I need SATA cables/how many will I need?
Is the PCU enough power to power the system?

Here are my parts:

hence why i essentially gave the same base ram(since amd performance = patriot), but changed out the gpu to a better game performing one.

The only problem is my MOBO doesn't have any PCI 3 ports

pci express is backwards compatable. the hd 7770 will turn itself into pci 2.0 level. the performance difference between pci 2.0 and pci 3.0 is extrememly minimal at the current moment. my hd 7850 in my sig technically is running pci 2.0 even on a pci 3.0 slot due to not using a ivy bridge cpu(yet)

Bump, anything else that might be a concern?
