Hi,

Noticed your motherboard is a Micro ATX and you ordered a mid size case, it will fit... but will look empty inside. Other then that, memory supported, not 100% sure but i think the 7850 takes 28Amp from PSU, so at least a 30AMP power supply would be recommended. DVD drive doesn't mention if its a SATA but it most likely is.
So yeah everything seems to fit but would maybe switch motherboard for a ATX instead of micro-ATX sized motherboard if it was my rig.

Everything looks okay, except for the power supply. I don't think 430W will be able to run a 7850.

You motherboard is fine, you don't need an ATX motherboard unless you want to either crossfire or overclock, which I highly doubt at your price point. You don't need to worry about your case looking empty anyways, you don't have a case with a window. If anything, the smaller motherboard will slightly improve airflow.

I'd recommend this RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It's cheaper and for the most part has the same specifications. If you're not overclocking your RAM, you don't really need a heat spreader.

Try this optical drive and save a dollar and also get a better brand: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Consider this power supply: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004IZN3K2/?tag=pcpapi-20

It's a better power supply than the Corsair, and the main difference aside from the 20W difference, is that this power supply is more efficient and at max load can pull 100W more than listed. At full load it can pull 550W at an astonishing 81% efficiency (really good for the price point) and at 450W it retains 85% efficiency. It will run your card better than the CX 430, and is more efficient.

Other than that, you build looks fine :)

Are u sure about that psu? the corsair is 80 plus bronze while the antec isn't... and from numerous sites i heard that the corsair is sufficient. I will not be overclocking or upgrading anytime soon....

And is the motherboard of good quality and brand?

The Rosewill Green is the best out of those, but I'd get a Seasonic M12II-620 over it though.
