I have recently been looking at building a custom PC for gaming (preferably ARMA 2 + Dayz). As this is my first PC build ever and i have little to zero experience, i would love some help and advice.
i have chosen these parts all off amazon.com and just wondering if they are all compatible and i am not missing any vital components.
Power supply Sufficient??
My budget is around $600 so this current build seems good so far...

I will post links and prices of parts chosen below and advice is welcomed!

Thank you!!

I like it. All looks good to me.
Here's a vid that I think is very helpful (ignore the parts used, it's an older vid) - the principles are the same http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_56kyib-Ls
