I want all of these parts, after making the necessary changes with the help of people here, and the help of people on other sites i have ended up with this build:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/yvbB

If you would be so kind as to check if these parts will work together that would be great. This is my first build and my parents have told me if something goes wrong, then thats it, i have to fix my old computer and use that until I make my own money to buy one. (I am not putting this together alone, my friend is helping me.)

Thank you guys.

There are a lot of changes you need to make still.
1. You don't need the full version of win 7 you only need the 64-bit.
2. Get the 1TB Seagate Barracuda instead of the WD Caviar Black, it preforms the same for 25$ less.
3. Unless you are running a huge server and/or doing very, very heavy 3D modeling work you dont need 32GB of RAM you can get 16GB of RAM and if you accually need the 32GB you can get another 16GB after you have build your computer.
4. You don't need a full ATX tower because it will be very large and heavy, depending on what your preference is you might want the Phantom 410 instead of the Phantom. Also the 410 has USB 3.0 front panel headers.
5. The Noctua NH-L12 will preform much better for the CPU cooler then the thermaltake, but if you not overclocking you don't need an aftermarket cooler.
6. You don't need 850 watts of power you can get a 600W power supply and it also makes it easier to build with a modular power supply.
7. If you do need to have 32GB of RAM you should also get the i7-3770k because it has hypertheading and that makes the processor run RAM intense program much better by having two thread going to each core.

After reviewing what you have said i folllowed 2,5,7.

For number 6 I am not sure which PSU would be a good choice.
Number 3, i picked 32gb of ram because i will be running a fairly large server and because I want to have 32 gbs. lol
Number 1, if i am correct the OEM version makes it so that you can only use it once for one mobo?

Actually with the i7-3770k and the low profile vengeance ram is there no reason not to go for the noctua nh-d14?

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/yvWn

with noctua nh-d14, i7-3770k segate barracuda and the win7 pro 64bit OEM.

It would be nice if you could find a power supply because I am completely lost with that part. I would prefer the 32gb ram and the full tower (currently have a full tower and it fits nice).

Corsair and SeaSonic make way better power supplies. Just because it says 80 plus GOLD doesn't mean you should get it lol.

Yes they do make better power supplies, but thermaltake is still a very reliable company, and im just saying that its gold so that you can depend on it to give you the performance it says. Gold does not mean its reliable in the long term, but it's claimed 65OW is reliable and therefore plenty for his set up. I personally have no problem with thermaltake and considering the price difference would prefer it.

Lol skimping out on the PSU is not recommended just because its "cheaper".

Can't get win7 home premium because I am going to be using 32 gb of ram so I would need to use at least Win7 pro.

I wouldn't exactly call it skimping because like i mentioned above thermaltake is a reliable brand. Maybe not as recognized as corsair and seasonic but it is still very high.

Is this for gaming? If so the 3770k is unnecessary and the i5 3570k will give you the SAME fps in games. And 32gb ram is stupid unless you are doing HARDCORE photoshop. Ive this is for gaming then go with this:

^I wouldn't get a rosewill PSU because there has been way too many complains about the rosewilll PSUs blowing up and that isn't good by any stretch of the imagination. Personally I would grab the Silverstone Strider 600W 80 PLUS Silver PSU, it's about 105$ depending on where you buy it and it is a great PSU.
