So this is my first computer I am building and I had two of my friends help me get the parts to make sure I don't end up frying the thing when I first turn it on. But I'm just wanting to get more feedback to make sure everything is in check. Here is the list of parts and the URL to newegg and that particular part's page.

COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

MSI NF750-G55 AM3 NVIDIA nForce 750a SLI HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

EVGA 01G-P3-1158-TR GeForce GTS 250 1GB 256-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto 3.1GHz Socket AM3 80W Dual-Core Processor Model HDZ550WFGIBOX

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL8D-4GBHK

Western Digital Caviar Blue WD6400AAKS 640GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Please tell me if anything doesn't look quite right. I'm not looking for anything better because that was in the range of my budget I'm just seeing if it will work right. Also if you have any tips for putting it together those would be helpful as well. Thanks!

All is compatible :)

Here are just some of the things I checked:
  • Motherboard's form factor will fit in case
  • Power Supply has correct PCI-E connector
  • RAM speed is compatible with Mobo
  • Power Supply is powerful enough
  • CPU is compatible with motherboard

Don't forget a CD/DVD drive and your Operating System.

Also if you have any tips for putting it together those would be helpful as well
