Final Check (ordering tonight!!)

Hey guys. This is my first build. Im pretty excited, but want to have all my bases covered. I have some questions about this build. Is everything compatible? Will it all work together nicely? Is it decent for gaming? Are they better name brands? Im just looking for last minute critiques. Thanks!!

  9. oh theres one thing i should have stated, the ram will downclock itself to 1333 due to motherboard limitations, regardless, i'm assuming you are getting the ram with the 5$ off sale so it shouldn't be the worst thing in the world, as its still cheaper than the 1333 varient i think.
  10. It was part of a combo deal so it was even a little cheaper. no biggie
