Need Advice on Build Parts Before Purchasing

Hey guys, so this is my first time ever putting together a computer from parts and not bought a prebuilt system.
My budget is $800.00 for this build
I would like to ask the community if all these parts will work together and there is no conflicting issue.
Most of the parts I have chose to be used are parts used in the $650 gaming build made here.
Link: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/build-gaming-pc-overclock,3159.html
The only parts I opted out and decided to change are the processor and the video card. So here are the parts.


Parts:

--Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147123
$29.99

--Ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820313102
$21.99

--CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115072
$219.99

--Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128539&Tpk=N82E16813128539
$69.99

--Hard drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148767
$74.99

--Video card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127663&Tpk=N82E16814127663
$239.99

--Optical drive http://www.amazon.com/LG-Electronics-Super-Internal-GH22NS90B/dp/B005S0YK1W/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top
$23.50

--Power supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182200
$59.99


Total cost (This isn't including rebates): $740.43

So any insight on any problems or maybe opting out and buying other parts from what I stated is what I am looking into. This build will be used mainly for gaming.
Thanks in advance guys!

  1. A few recommendations.

    First off your case is fine, but it's small. For $25 more you can get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157296 +25

    You upgraded to an unlocked CPU, but you can't overclock on H61 mobos. I'd recommend a new Z77 motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157297, but it isn't micro-atx size so it wouldn't fit in your current case. + 25

    I would also recommend the 570 over your 7850. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127682 +10

    This would bring your total up $60 before rebates to right to your $800 budget and should be a stronger system overall.

    Thank you for the recommendations, I will keep these all in mind. The 7850 I might pick up over the 570 as the rebate makes its $40.00 less and too tempting to passed up. The motherboard I will definitely buy over the one I had listed.
    One question though is what case are you referring to? The link for the case is to another motherboard and I think it was done by mistake?

    Thanks in advance.

    A motherboard for a case? :heink:

    I'd personally go with something like a HAF 912: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119233

    Thanks for the reply!
    Yes I think MajorAdvantage might of copied and paste the wrong link for the case.

    Yeah it happens - I one time posted a link for a hard drive instead of a power supply. :lol:
  6. Thanks for the response again, still open to any more suggestions, also I might be looking into monitors to buy but for mainly gaming uses and is as cheap as possible.

    Looking at these two monitors atm:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009365&Tpk=N82E16824009365

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009316&Tpk=N82E16824009316

    I'd personally go for the LED if I had to pick between the two.
