I have been researching and looking at computer parts for a couple of months now and I think I have finally picked out my parts but I'm not 100% sure if they are compatible(I think they are) and if the power supply has enough connectors for all of the components. Also if you have any advice on any upgrades or changes please post them. I will be doing a lot of programming, 3d modeling(in maya), and a little gaming. I know I don't have a video card but I'll probably get that when I get my monitor in a couple more weeks. Thanks.

First off whats your budget, and do you plan on overclocking? As for gaming is this newly made games on high settings? As for your motherboard its a good choice and im getting one of those also atm. It provides a great quality 1155 board at a decent price, just make sure you can utilize all those extra goodies, or you might as well go with the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155, which will save you afew extra dimes.

Short answer...

Yes.

Should be good as long as you get a graphics card which supports 750w or lower.

Considering you dont have a GPU in there and probably wont have dual cards when you do get one, you only need a 600W PSU. Fatal1ty branded stuff is more expensive because of the name, there are other better PSU's for the same price.

that CPU wont let you overclock, dont know whether you want that or not, just saying.

Rest of the builds good.

my budget is around $800-$900 and with all the deals this build comes out to $793.99. I probably won't overclock but if I do it will only be a little bit. Also the games would be newwer games like diablo 3, crysis, and cod but I don't need to max them out, I just want to play without lag.

The reason I picked this psu was mainly so I could use it in the future and also because it is almost 50% off and it looked good.
