I have recently decided that I want to attempt to put together a decent PC that will be able to run open-world games smoothly.
I am on a strict budget of around 600 bucks.
I am extremely new to PCs and their parts. Haven't had a PC since I was a young child.

So, after browsing around on Newegg, I came up with a cart that came out to around $611.00. $634.00 with shipping.
But, before making any purchases I wanted to know if everything Ive chosen would work out.
Is there anything I should change? Anything missing?

Thanks in advance.

I don't know where you are getting $630 ( I'm getting $560 on If you want to know if it is simply compatible. Congrats it is, but if you want suggestions just from me. Here they are:
-If you have a nearby frys, you can pricematch the 3570k at microcenter which is $170 for a better processor! With the money you save you could get a cooler master hyper 212 and overclock your CPU!
-A good motherboard is MSI Z77A-G41 for $20 extra so that you can overclock it with z77 chipset.
-Another upgrade in the future is $10 you could get a TB...twice as much data.

Just making sure, you didn't want a dvd drive right?
