My First Custom Build, Need Help

So I want to know if all these parts will fit together, I keep doing research, but I can't figure it out. Also if you have any tips or opinions on the parts, I'd love to hear them :)

Here's the build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/qxM2

Thanks!

    That's a solid build. MS screwed up and removed the start button menu from Windows 8 (will most likely be back with the first Service Pack update) but here's two links to check out if you want that button back.

  8. I've really been thinking of getting 7 again. But I was told 8 has a 15% speed boost, is that true?
    Also, thanks for the help thus far :)

    I'm not sure about the speed boost tbh. I have Windows 7 and I really like it but Windows 8 will be most likely be my next OS. Iv'e always been one to move onto the next OS unlike a lot of people on here who are still stuck in the dark ages with XP.


    Here's some reviews/benchmarks done here on Toms to check out

  10. The two are neck and neck, so I think I'll just learn how to use 8. I will say though, 7 was great.
