Is this a solid build for the money? Its my first time building a computer and i want to make sure all the components are compatible with each other. It will be used mostly for gaming, like skyrim and whatnot.

For some reason you have a tiny motherboard in quite a big case, I would get a full ATX or mATX motherboard. Other than that it looks OK.

Well what mobo would you suggest? I cant seem to find one that is affordable, reliable and supports the rest of my hardware.
Thanks!

no problem. most new buyers dont know the ins and outs of bundle pricing on certain items as much. simple changes can yeild better results.
