Are my Parts compatible? :D

I'm 13 years old and this is my first computer build, so you can understand how much of an adventure this is for me. :D
Can you tell me if my computer parts are compatible.
Basically I need someone to tell me everything that could be a problem with my build. I'm sorry if I'm asking to much. Also if you play starcraft 2 can you tell me if this computer can play it on best graphics.

Link to each part:
32 gb ram is ddr3 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
motherboard 32 gb ram ddr3 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Computer Case ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Heatsink Fan ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
cpu ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Optical drive^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Hard Drive ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Video Card ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Power Supply ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    That's a cool case.

    32GB of RAM is massive overkill for gaming. You only really need 8GB. This build is pretty imbalanced for gaming.

    I am also assuming you are not overclocking. Also I'm guessing you don't need Windows.

    Try this:

    You can get a SSD too, but I'll leave that to your discretion. This is much more balanced.
  2. What do you mean by balanced ?

  4. The CPU is overkill for gaming. Your video card was too weak for gaming. This gives you a powerful CPU and a top-of-the-line video card.
  5. what about the motherboard ? also how does ram effect gaming ?
  6. Also I kinda wanted EVGA brand motherboard
  7. And probably the final thing can I use the other heat sink fan instead of the one that comes with the cpu or is that a bad idea ?
  8. You aren't overclocking, so its not a big deal to need a bigger fan.

    The motherboard is great. Having more RAM for gaming is nice, but more than 8GB and its just a lost cause.

    I don't think EVGA makes any cheap motherboards right now.
