Please tell me if I made any mistakes in terms of compatibility and space. And if you have other suggestions for certain parts, please make them.

At a glance it looks compatible but I suggest putting all of those parts into partpicker.com Once they are all added in, if something is not compatible with one another then it will say on the bottom of the list of your parts.

For gaming i'd go for i5, 3570k to be exact. It has the same price as the FX 8350 does and beats it at games, change PSU that one isn't a good one.

It doesn't have the same price as the 8350, it is around 20-30$ more and some games, the 8350 beats it. Recently Logan from TekSyndicate did a review on the 3570K and the 8350, in his results the 8350 won A LOT of the test. Just saying... =)

Depends where you buy it. I just prefer Intel for high end gaming builds.

^ Agreed, they use less power and [usually] produce better results.
