Default First Build, Lets Hope this is compatible

Helllllo everybody!

Heres the situation, I am in the process of looking at components to build my first rig. It will be used for browsing as well as gaming (i.e. LoL, BF3, Diablo3) so it needs to be fast and be able to operate well under heavy loads. My budget is ~$1000USD, and I don't mind going over that if it is better quality and more bang for my buck. I'm hoping everything will be compatible that I have chosen, if not please let me know and if you have any recommendations on what I may/may not need, PLEASE feel free to let me know. I have included a list of my current parts, the only one I do not have yet is a case. I am open to suggestions, the only thing I am looking for is a side view panel and some nice LEDS...Also if I forgot a component, let me know as well hahaha

Thanks in advance for all your help. Once everyone tosses in their input and I know everything is compatible, I will start purchasing all the components.

it looks good, dont get a Z68 board, you arent going to be using the features it has to offer, a P67 board will do just fine.

Why not get a z68 board? You can get an asus z68 mobo with current uefi bios for like $132 on newegg.

Not necessarily. Z68 boards typically have more features, and if he wants to add an SSD later they have the rapid storage.

Well, I'm glad to see that I remembered everything, does anyone have any suggestions about what kind of case I should get that'll have enough room and vents/fans so it doesn't overheat?

A good cheap case is a cooler master storm enforcer.Its not a top model but its a good first build case.If you have some extra money buy a coolermaster haf series case.they are designed for high air flow(hence haf) just go on newegg and look around your price range.My case is the storm enforcer and i have no problems with it.im buying it again for a second build since mine has a massive crack on the side but that was my fault well actually my cat pushed.it off my desk..thankgod it didnt have parts inside(was working on cable mangament so i was going.ham with a dremel)lol.

Cases are a personal thing. Some people like flash, others, not so much.

Like suggested, go to Newegg and check out the cases in your price range. But you can also tailor the search for the number of fans you want and what size they are. Typically, you want to look at a case with at least 2, 120mm fans included. (most cases will give you the option to add more on your own) but I have this case , and it's a very nice for the money. I just replaced the front blue fan, since I don't like lights.

Newegg.com - Rosewill Smart One ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, Black interior, comes with three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Rear 120mm Fan, 1x Top 120mm Fan, Option Fans-2x Side 120mm Fan

Case: AZZA Solano 1000R Black / Red Japanese SECC Steel/Metal mesh in front ATX Full Tower Computer Case

I was looking at this case and I was curious if anyone could give me insight on whether or not AZZA is a good brand and if the MB will work in this case. The only reason I ask is because I know some people were having trouble with 3.0 USB ports on the MB and it not working with the case. I think I should be okay, but I would like someone to confirm my guess.

I think I'm probably the only person in existence that doesn't like the HAF cases.
