Hello! This is my first attempt at building a computer and I'd like to know if all components are compatable / if there's a better replacement for one. It is "Denny's Desktop" shared NewEgg wishlist:

My advice would be to forget about the SSD in favor of spending money on parts that actually have a better impact on gaming performance. Specifically the video card and processor. An SSD is purely a luxury item and will not increase framerates or ability to play games in higher resolution. Also 64GB is way too small for a primary drive, I would suggest at least 128GB if you want an SSD at all, and ideally 256GB. I wouldn't bother with a 64GB, between Windows and NTFS format you'll only have about 40GB of it for games and everything else, thats almost nothing considering a single game can take over 10GB these days.
The 6850 is a decent video card, but its still entry level.
I couldn't pull up the wishlist on the search, if you have a link to it that would help.
