Default 1st time builder

Im building a PC for the first time with the help of one of my friends. Im mostly going to be using it for music and games. Im trying to spend right around $800. I just want to know if all these parts are compatible and if need to buy anything else for the computer to run.

I kind of just threw parts together with my vague knowledge so if anyone could come up with a better $800 gaming pc build that would be nice.

dvd/cd burner

Oh ok I see now, looking at the supported cpu specs. Is there any other motherboard around the same price that would be good?

Also, Don't use the Power supply that comes with the case. Raidmax(s) arent reguarded as good PSU's.
Your better off finding a case without a power supply, then, buying a 450 Watt FSP Fortron Source Power supply.
Fortron for short.
