Hello, all.

My Uncle has asked me to build a PC for his wife for Christmas. The budget is $1500, and listed below are the parts I chose. The point of this thread is solely to verify the compatibility of the parts I selected. I am not really open to suggested alternative components because I'll be buying from a local Microcenter which may not have the same prices you'd find online (this is time-sensitive and risking receiving DOA components from online shopping isn't an option).

My main concern is that the RAM's Mfr Part # wasn't listed on the Asrock motherboard memory support list (http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/Z77%20Extreme4/index.us.asp?cat=Memory). However, I've read on forums that this RAM works fine with this motherboard.
