So i have 700$ ATM and am quite satisfied with this PC build that suits my needs and in the end will cost me about 900$ with an OS. On to the point of this thread i am a bit of a "newb" with building PC's as i have never done so before, so i would appreciate it greatly if anyone could point out any conflicts in my build,or state that everything's compatible, or even any suggestions which would improve my build cost without any less quality / performance. Also since im new to PC building i would greatly appreciate it if you guys could link me to the best tutorial(s) for my needs.

Looks good, nothing is incompatible or wrong with it.

Though you will need an aftermarket heatsink to cool the CPU to overclock.

You can get Seagate Barracuda 2TB for $120. Same specs as the Deskstar.

Thanks for the reply ! ill probably OC in the future so i can get that later. Also are there any PC Building tutorials you would reccomend ?
