$1500 PC Build (First Build)

Hello Everyone,

I am planning to build my first PC in a couple of months and was wondering if this was a good build before

I order all of the parts. If there are any problems or parts that you think are better please leave a suggestion.

Is everything compatible?

    $1500 budget with everything and you're getting a GTX 650??? No, just no. Drop the sound card - you don't need it. I'd scrap that whole build - you especially don't need the expensive peripherals initially - and go with something like this:
