Hi gustafsonjake and
A couple red flags. You need to research your parts a bit more thoroughly. Note the motherboard you selected supports "dual-channel" memory architecture. In order to take advantage of the increased performance dual-channel provides, you MUST
install RAM in matched pairs
- not sets of 3. I recommend you visit the sites for your components and download the manuals to become familiar with them.
I don't see an operating system listed. A common mistake is some users assume they can use their old Windows license on a new computer. Understand only a "boxed" full Retail
license can be transferred to a new computer (or upgraded motherboard). It is illegal
to use an OEM license that came with or was purchased for one computer on another computer. A disk “branded” with a computer maker’s brand name, or is labeled with “OEM/System Builder”, “Upgrade”, “Academic Edition”, or "For Distribution with a new PC only", is not
transferable to a new PC (or upgraded motherboard) under any
circumstances. These OEM licenses are inextricably tied to the "original equipment". So if that is the case, I recommend 64-bit Windows 7 or one of the many free Linux alternatives. Just ensure it is 64-bit since you have selected more than 4Gb of RAM.
The motherboard and PSU should come with all the cables you need.
I prefer cases with removable, washable air filters so I don't have to tear down and lug my system outside near as often. In your price range, I like the Antec Three Hundred
