Just wanted to get some feedback on this build; Would it make a decent rig for gaming, internet surfing/everyday stuff, etc. ? A compatibility check would also be awesome.
I'd greatly appreciate any feedback, thoughts, ideas, opinions.
Thanks in advance

Well first off none of your hyperlinks work. the motheboard is micro atx and the case is atx. The micro atx board will fit in the case but you could get a smaller case and it would be more portable. I would get a 2500k. It is only 10 more dollars and it will allow you to overclock. If you don't think that ability is worth 10 more is your decision. You could easily get ram clocked at 1600mhz for like 5 more bucks or even the same price. You could get a sapphire 6950 for 20 more bucks and it will outperform a 560ti in most games. Those are my recommendations. But id you keep everything the same it will still be a good PC.

Sorry about the links.

I was under the impression that the H67 board I chose wouldn't support overclocking so that's why I didn't put the 2500k in the list.

Thanks for the reply! :)

$750-850 USD
Southern California, USA
and I need pretty much all the parts that I listed: CPU, GPU, Motherboard, Hard Drive, RAM, DVD Drive, PSU, Case, OS.
