I need to know if everything is compatible or if I need anything else. Like if all the power plugs are compatible and if everything fits inside the case. This is a first build so I'm not that experienced.

Any tips would also be helpful.

Budget 1000-1500

That Kingston RAM is rated at 1.65V so that will cause a bit of system instability with Ivy Bridge builds. You need 1.5V. Try something like this instead:

And then for that budget I'd put a bit more into the case. The HAF 912 is good but a $1500 build deserves a strong case. Try something like this:

And then I'd swap the SSD - Corsair SSDs aren't the best - for something like this:

And for your video card get this:

Otherwise everything else looks good.

Oh yeah this is a gaming rig if you haven't noticed already :p

You don't need a RE4 HDD. Get a regular SATA II hard drive. RE4 is more for enterprise, not gaming.

Yup - I wouldn't recommend it if I didn't think it was good.
