:welcome: Beastlyhex

The build is ok what we can see however your MB link is a duplicate of the video card.

Missing from the list is a DVD drive to install the OS and an OS disk itself such as Windows 7 64-bit.

Your MB is very high end but the video card is only mediocre, if you are building a gaming rig or planning on video rendering, CAD or 3D work you would be better to go for a less expensive MB that only has features that you will use and use the cash saved to improve the video card and one that has a minimum 192-bit but preferably a 256-bit interface, this will give you better all round video quality.

Do you already have a DVD drive and OS disk.

An alternative list using your case and CPU http://uk.pcpartpick...wer2/saved/1Q0k

Do you have a budget in mind and is it a gaming rig that you are building?
