Rate and modify my build

The site says that everything is compatible but I would like to know if everything truly is compatible such as will the motherboard wil fit so on and so forth and what power supply should I get I honestly dont trust the web site and is there room for improvement such as lowering the price without risking performance or maintaining the price and better performance.

  1. P.S. No overclocking of any sort will be done.
  2. In my opinion, that is way too much for the case, keyboard, and mouse unless you really, really like them. You could do so much better performance wise without all of the fancy stuff.

  3. Thanks a lot for the feedback and I will definitely look into my build further and use your suggestions before I purchase everything.
  4. What Cball said, you could build a lot better machine on that sort of budget.
