Need to check if these parts work together (First build)

Hey guys, I am relatively new to building a computer and I have just finished picking parts with the help of my friend. I didn't want something overly complicated and my friend says that this build is good enough for what i want to do. I have come over here to see if everything is compatible if there are things I can fix and everything. (My friend is going to help me build the computer). I need this build to be pretty much spot on or else my mom won't let me shell out the cash for it... (I don't know don't ask me why...)

Theres the list. I am writing this at 9:45 PM EST, will check in a little. I will be able to use the computer again at 4:30-5:30 PM EST tomorrow. Thank you for your help.

  1. Hi, usage of the future planned pc ?

    I made some changes :

    16GB for video/image editing which is more than required, you save some by not buying those 32GB, if it's for gaming you can put just 8GB.
    A current card from nvidia, the one you had is older.
    Also a proper ssd from a-data and a good psu for a stellar price.
  2. ti is all compatible :) but at that price range your friend should have suggested a better build
  3. Thank you for your help, The purpose of use for the computer is to play the most current games, host my own game servers, and multitask. The 32gb of ram was just because I could. I realize that I could do fine with 8 gb of ram. I just need to make sure that it will all run together, fit in properly, and run effectively without any additional parts.

    On the other side I will probably be saving this build as it looks almost impossible to build it with the way the conversation on building the new computer occurred.
  4. whats ur full budget and ur country of origin?

    Just got back from school, I am in the U.S.A. and for a budget I'm not sure but a simple build below 1.5k is nice.

    Changed the list a little:

    please check make any changes and please write out the changes. Thank you for the help.

    the ssd the 32gigs a nvidia graphics card, and the 8 core amd processor would be preferred. I do not want an overly complicated build. (Also i will require a 1 tb hdd).
