    Looks like it is going to be a nice build!

    Yes all of these parts do go together. The only thing I might suggest is buying a little better of a power supply, a few reviews suggested that it lasts around a year. But it all depends on your wear and tear on your PC. If you are planning on some heavy gaming or video editing it might be worth it in the long run to pay the extra for a higher end supply.

    Lastly for the build make sure you install a 64 bit OS with 8GB of RAM or it would be a waste.

    Any questions let me know. Have fun with your build.

    Yeah, don’t cheap out on your PSU. For $17 you get what you pay for. A crap PSU can kill or damage the lifespan of all your other expensive parts.

    I suggest going with a PSU from Seasonic, Antec or Corsair.

    Also, If you’re going for a gaming PC, and your budget is maxed, consider dropping your RAM down to 4GB and putting the rest of the money into a better video card. With just one game and your OS running, you’re not going to use all the RAM. Still stick with a 64bit OS, or else you’ll still only see 3GB of system RAM available.
