:welcome: TheNewb8748

Unfortunately there are several incompatible parts.

Please look at the issues at the bottom of this parts list page, > http://pcpartpicker.com/p/cMTXNG

You would also need to add at least one SSD or HDD.

If this is to be a gaming computer and you are not going to do semi pro video/photo editing? we can configure a computer for a lot less.

Some consideration should be given to the type of monitor you are going to use.   There would be little point in using an el cheapo one, as the other parts high performance would not be seen.

Been a while since we hear from you.   Do you still require help selecting parts?   An update would be appreciated.

 

Thanks.

If I may...

 

Normally, On Board sound is more then enough. Generally, the Extra Audio Cards are not needed.

 

Your parts are definitely NOT compatible. Something like this (http://pcpartpicker.com/p/H9sBdC) would be a little more suitable. Although, always open to revision of course.

 

Added an SSD for Fast Boot up times, and a 2TB drive for Storage. (Games, Documents).

 

Revised the MoBo to be compatible with your RAM and CPU.

 

Just a rough idea to what you're looking for
