Hello and thank you for taking the time to take a look at my parts

I have selected everything i want for my build and am almost positive that i have made the correct decisions. What i need is for someone to check and see if all of my parts are compatible like i thought they were. It would suck to buy them and then figure out that one part does not work with another. I have a very basic knowledge of computers so anything will help. If you find that all my parts are compatible but think another part would be more efficient please tell me. Thank You :)

All compatible, I would save a few bucks and get an OCZ 750w from amazon for 80$, then use the left over money and get 8GB of DDR3 RAM :p

4 sticks of 2 is fine, but 2x4 is very slightly faster.

Ive heard that filling all the memory slots is more beneficial for the motherboard to get the maximum performance

it doesnt matter, I would rather install 2 sticks instead of 4 unless you are trying to max out your mobo

No, if your building a PC for gaming I wouldnt buy more than 8 GBs. If you are doing intense autocad type stuff - go with 16 GBs. If you buy a mobo that supports 32GB of RAM and feel like spending the money max out the RAM on the board
