I'm wondering if these parts are all compatible and fit into the case. I'm open to changes to any parts but I can't go much higher than $1200.

If you are hoping to overclock at all you will definitely need a heatsink fan for your CPU. The fan that comes with it will not be able to keep it cool enough. Often a heatsink fan has trouble fitting in a smaller case like this. Take a look at this fan as an option or others and look at the dimensions to see if it would fit.
