Hello this will be my first time building a gaming pc would like some help on the parts.

Power Supply:

Memory:

Motherboard:

Processor:

Hard Drive:

Video Card:

I know the video card is really old but I'm on a budget and will update the video card later this year. The only game I play at the moment is league of legends.

Are all these parts compatible? Is there anything I should change?

I'm not to sure about the mother board but it seems like a good deal at $79 after mail in rebate.

I'm still not sure on what computer case to get what would you guys recommend?

Also I live in Canada so the part are a bit more expensive than you guys might be use to from Us sites.

Thanks,

I'd spend some time looking at Sky Lake release dates before building a computer. It's 2 generations newer compared to your Haswell pick. Also, although you may not be thinking about overclocking since it's your first foray into the world of computer building, that is one of the main reasons to build your own PC. Intel CPU's have been capable of a 15% overclock without any real effort or stress on the system for many years now, so if you can use the extra speed tapping into that is a no-brainer.

All the parts are compatible, the PSU is somewhat low quality, but you should upgrade the GPU first is my opinion. For a case, I'd recommend anything from Corsair, I like the 200R, lots of space for drives and space to work in.
