Hey guys. Please be kind to check to see if the parts are not faulty or bad and also if they are compatible with one another. Feel free to add some suggestions as well. Sorry for posting so many times, I'm just worried :na: . First time builder.

Thanks guys. Also you guys can tell me deals and where to get cheaper parts.

I changed the motherboard to an ASUS P8Z77-V Lk. Let me know if that's a problem or if I should keep the regular Asus motherboard.

Keep the ASUS. They're a bigger name compared to ASRock. It's like buying Walmart brand chips when you could get Lays. All my ASUS mobos have worked. My one ASRock didn't. Very great build overall though!

1: kingston ram is a no-go. 1.65v is bad for intel chips. go to newegg and pick up a set of gskill ares 1600mhz 8gb kit. find the color that you want (or the one that matches blue theme)

2: power supply is a no-go. get a pc & power cooling Mk2 750w from ncix. they are selling it for 59.99 after 20 dollar MIR

3: the case can use a boost. id get a antec 302 since it is a great case and has USB3

no-go on the monitor. getting a big monitor means that you lose pixel density. i rather buy a 21.5inch monitor and get more clarity. id suggest a asus vs228h-p

for the wifi card, just buy a PCI based one from newegg instead of those usb sicks

got any pci suggestions?
Oh yea and why isn't the PSU good? They have a good review on hardwaresecrets.com
Also what's wrong with the Rosewill Challanger case? It's tomshardware choice on newegg and it's a mid tower like the antec three hundred two.

Alrighty thanks Azeem. By the way, should I get the PC Power and Cooling 750w that BigTroll reccommended or is my PSU okay? Also is the Challanger case good enough to fit all my parts? :D

i assumed that you will crossfire in the future so i suggested a 750w psu. it is pretty high quality and selling at a great price. only draw back is that it isnt modular and cabling will be a bit harder. that is why i chose the antec 302 since it has well over a inch of space in the back for all the extra cables

@TheBigTroll I found this new PSU that's 700w and it's $49.98 on NCIX. Do you think this is a good enough PSU for future overclocking and SLI/Crossfire? Your PC Power and Cooling is no longer $59.99.

Oh lol I was looking at the wrong PC Power and Cooling. Thanks for the link. You got anymore suggestions? I switched the ram, motherboard, psu, and case. I want to really make sure before I order.

The PSU is sold out...
