Hey guys here is what I have come up with so far, its probably not great. I have no idea what to do as far as motherboards are concerned, and im not too sure what I should do for a power supply wattage wise. I want to spend about 200 - 250 for those two parts but possibly a little more if it is worth it. Anyway, this is what I have so far.

COOLER MASTER HAF 922 RC-922M-KKN3-GP Black Steel + Plastic and Mesh Bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Black Interior

Western Digital RE4 WD1003FBYX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Enterprise Hard Drive -Bare Drive

XFX FX-795A-TNBC Radeon HD 7950 Black 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

LITE-ON Black 18X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM SATA DVD-ROM Drive Model iHDS118-04 - OEM

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9R

AMD FX-4170 Zambezi 4.2GHz (4.3GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Quad-Core Desktop Processor FD4170FRGUBOX

Probably will be using a 1080p monitor and adding another 1TB drive that I have.

Also is this stuff so far compatible? I know the motherboard has a lot to do with all that but I don't want to have anything getting dragged down by any of the other parts and making them under-perform.
