Well, I was saying some parts are cheaper on newegg. I go to multiple places to buy products. Like, why not just get the gpu from newegg, unless you have some weird buy in bulk special, but If not I don't see why you wouldn't.

Will do. Does anyone else care to give me their input on how well I did on picking out the parts? I just want to be sure that they are compatible and will work well together before i purchase.

No, this is my first build. I don't think I'm going to attempt to overclock right away.

Can you explain what is wrong with the case and make a recommendation?

It's a cheap case which doesn't even have 3.0. Normally, I would recommend it but only on budget builds. You can get a NZXT Elite 210 or NZXT 220 which are more expensive but better in most aspects.

You won't be able to overclock it with an H77 board. You need is z75 or z77.

It should more or less be like this! NEVER GET COOLERMASTER PSU especially the one you chose. It's the worst PSU ever, it is prone to fail and take other parts with it.

The Op drive, PCpartpicker is having problems and the $28 drive is the cheapest.

I may just buy the graphics card from Newegg, and everything else from Amazon. It doesn't appear that Amazon has the deal.
