Hello I am making my first build and I was wondering if all the parts I picked are good and if there are any compatibility issues. I am going to use this for gaming. The game I really want to use this for is Final Fantasy XIV.

Mobo: ASRock z77 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Video Card: EVGA 01G-P3-1361-KR GeForce GTX 460 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The build is definitely compatible, but you didn't balance it out. The graphics card you picked is really low end and it's the most important part of your build. Also, it's good to have 8GB of RAM. Here's my suggestion, get a GTX 570, 8GB of RAM and drop your PSU to a TX 650 v2.

Hi there yes all your parts are compatible but i would suggest you get a better GPU a R7850 or a GTX 570 would be ideal for a $1000 gaming build

You could get a R7850 just switch out the GTX 570 I prefer the GTX 570 myself but both are great cards and you couldn't go wrong with either of them
