So I've been doing some research into building my first computer, I'd like it to be optimized for gaming but small (mini-ITX). I've come up with this list so far of parts. Anyone have suggestions on things I should change/add/remove?

CPU: Intel Core i5-4570 Processor model:CM8064601464707 $200
Motherboard: Asus H87i-Plus $120
Chassis: BitFenix Prodigy Black model:BFC-PRO-300-KKXSK-RP $90
RAM: Kingston HyperX 8GB (2x4GB) model:KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX $77
Storage: Western Digital Black 500GB model:WD5003AZEX $75
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 $95
PSU: Corsair TX650M model:CP-9020039-NA $100
Network: D-Link Wireless N 300 Dual Band PCI Express Desktop Adapter $51
Total: ~$800

Is everything here compatible? I would prefer to not spend much more money than as is. Thanks.

*Edit* Forgot to mention, it's going to be running Windows 8

:welcome: Louden257

Not sure about the size of the PSU and whether it will fit in the case, your PSU Dimensions5.9"(W) x 3.4"(H) x 6.3"(L) please see reply #1 at the Newegg feedback tab http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811345016

Another concern is the size of the add on video card, what brand of the GTX 650 do you have in mind so that we can check the dimensions, all else looks good but I would swap the HDD for http://www.outletpc....top SATA Drives

Just noticed that OutletPC is showing the HDD to only have 32MB of cache when it should be 64MB, see attached link http://pcpartpicker....ive-st1000dm003
