:welcome: Ethan Kayser

Couple of things to note;
You do not have a motherboard (MB) on the list of parts.
You have a CPU and Ram on your list, please see my canned text below regarding a MBs QVL
Choose a better brand of PSU such as Antec, Corsair, OCZ or Seasonic.
You have not included an OS disk such as Windows 7 64-bit, what will you be using?

For the best and most stable performance you should where possible purchase a CPU and Ram that have been tested and approved by the motherboard manufacturer, this is referred to as the QVL ( qualified vendors list ) understand though that there are too many products released for them all to be tested so other hardware will be compatible but not proven to be.

If you tell us where in the world the parts will be purchased we may be able to find less expensive alternatives for you.
