I have just started to working with computer hardware, and i have my first build. I am looking for feed back on if it is good computer for its  price range (around $600) and if the are any compatibility issues or missing pieces, and if you think i should change parts with high or lower quality hardware.

:welcome: ReactiveAdam

 

A good build for that price range.   All parts are compatible. 

Unless you have selected your case for style, I would suggest considering a better quality one, for $2 more, the Challenger S, http://www.newegg.co...N82E16811147237

+ A higher clocked GPU, this one also exhausts most of the heat out the back of the case as against the TF which dumps it into the case. > http://www.bhphotovi...0_graphics.html

All the specs, > http://www.evga.com/...4a-8ae25cad9d25

 

You have not included an operating system in the costs.

Echo most of what iammykyl has said but personally I would look to spend some extra cash on a better quality brand case, I did find a nice looking well cooled alternative chassis here though.

 

Be sure to read any reviews that are available before making any purchase, it will save you time, trouble, cash and avoid headaches, one review for the case included in your parts list is titled "Tower Fried 3 motherboards" that is seriously bad luck  :(

Gday.

Yes, comes with a upgraded cooler used on the FX series, pic on this page, > http://www.legitrevi...for-137_164322\ 

I would go for a monitor like this, > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16824160273

The OS makes little difference to gaming.   What are you using at the moment?

Im using windows 10 on my laptop, but i don't like it that much, it seams to eat a lot of my processors ability. So im looking into windows 7 or 8 at the moment.

Windows 10 is better than Windows 8/8.1 and is as user friendly as Windows 7 so would be my suggestion for the OS, you should also keep in mind that mainstream support for Windows 7 has ended and extended support will cease on 14 January 2020.

Going off topic here but can I ask what makes you say that Windows 10 is affecting the CPUs performance and what is the brand and model name or number of your notebook.

Sounds like the Chromebook issue/s involves a bit of work rather than a quick fix so it would be best to start a new thread on the appropriate OS forum, one of us will gladly help you there.
