Thanks a lot for the replies. I just have a few more questions regarding the parts I have so far, linked below:

Newegg.com Shopping Cart

I would like to make sure that all the parts are compatible with each other. Also, seeing how the price is about $100 over my preferred maximum without the OS, Is there anyway to reduce some prices while maintaining most of the same performance?

I already have a keyboard, mouse, and monitor. Other than the OS, is there anything I missed?

Thank you very much for your help.

zzf does have free shpping, but newegg's got the best return policy and customer service.

And customer service wins imo.

Alright, I saved the wish list and shared it in the public wish lists section, but when searching for it I can't find it on the list. Does it take a while for it to update or am I just doing something wrong?
