I just compiled all the parts that I need, (that's me personally, I have things like CD drives) and I'm a little weary on whether or not everything will function properly, I.E. the power supply working and having enough room in the computer case. Here's a list of my parts:

COOLER MASTER Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

XIGMATEK HDC-D802 Aluminum Hard Drive Cooler for HDD Bay (Free with HDD)

Asus VK278Q Black 27" Full HD HDMI LED BackLight LCD Monitor w/Webcam

EVGA SuperClocked 012-P3-1572-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V v2.2 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL

Intel Core i7-2600 Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I72600+MSI H67MA-E35 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel H67 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard Combo

Please forgive me if I made any obvious mistakes. This will be my first build. <3

Good selection, everything will work together.

I see that you have gone for the combo deal. Some information just in case you are not aware of the following.

The H67 motherboards have video outlets on board. The Sandy Bridge 2500 and 2600 have integrated graphics in the CPU but have limited overclocking.
When those CPUs are installed on the H67 Mobo you have access to the integrated graphics BUT when you install a discrete video card the integrated graphics are disabled.

The P67 motherboards do NOT have any video outlets, so no matter which Sandy Bridge CPU you install you have NO access to integrated graphics and have to install a discrete video card.
So most builders will upgrade to the 2500K or 2600K to access the overclocking features.

So you're saying it's completely worth the extra $20-30 for the 2600K? I can swing that. =)

The ATX Form Factor standard insures your ATX PSU will fit inside your ATX case and connect to your ATX motherboard.

I don't see an OS listed. New computers require their own licenses. OEM licenses for Windows that came with other computers are NOT transferable to new computers.

Yes, well worth the extra.

I also advise you to upgrade to the newest Z68 Motherboard, the ASRock Z68 PRO3 ATX Intel Motherboard

I have yet to actually purchase the components. Just wanted to make sure I did my research and had plenty of time to weigh my options beforehand. This build probably won't be completed until the later end of this year.
