I'm wondering if this will all work together, and if I should change something. I'm a highschooler and my dad is going to help me build it. (I need to ask him :P) I just want your input in this. I dont know if this counts as a gaming computer, eventhough my graphics card and other parts are for that (and i plan on using it for gaming occasionally)

Thanks
