Alright, so from my work and Christmas I saved up a little bit of money to get a gaming PC. I thought I'd try and pick out the parts myself and build it. I've put PCs together before, but this is the first time I've ever picked out my own parts and I'm not that knowledgeable when it comes to compatibility. I was hoping that I could post my choices here and get an opinion on the compatibility, just to double check before I order anything.

Parts:
Case - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Motherboard - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Power Supply - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Hard Drive - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Graphics Card - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
RAM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Hopefully that's all good and I don't make myself look like a complete idiot ^^ Thanks for your time.

Looks fairly good, although I did not check everything because having to click on all those links is cumbersome, next time put your build together on pcpartpicker.com , it keeps track of compatibility fairly well automatically for you, but it cannot hurt to double-check it here. It can create a text output with links of all the parts you have selected which makes it much easier for us to view.

Thanks for the post. I can definitely go with that if I wait until next paycheck.

That is a quality build, you could upgrade the GPU if your still in budget.

Thanks. I'm glad I was able to pick good parts. Was a bit nervous about doing it.

I wouldn't recommend the 560 at this time, the 7850 is much better imo and only like $20 more.
