Hi. I'm going to be attempting my first build pretty soon. Before I place the orders though, I want to make sure everything's good to go. It's main purpose is gaming and movies, the latter being largely the reason for the 1tb HDD. I'll likely order the parts at the start of next week.
I'm not really concerned with the price/value aspect of my choices, and I'm fully aware that certain choices like the USB wireless adapter are questionable as well as the overkill RAM. Just want to make sure everything is compatible and will work well, especially in regards to the case, will everything fit comfortably? Also, I don't have much use for the optical drive, I only really need it for the initial Win 7 installation, is there any way that can be properly circumvented, i.e. by using an external hard-drive instead? And if I made any other generally stupid mistakes, feel free to point them out.
Also any other building tips for a newbie would be much appreciated.
