I am building a new machine myself, It will be the first time for me.
I will list all the components that I have and the ones I am prepared to buy. I will need some of you who are more knowledgeable and experienced than me to give me your opinions or suggestions as to if all the components will match each other. And if I am missing anything that I need to get this machine up and running.

I Plan to install Windows 7 Ultimate,
I tried to check everything myself to decide on these components but I would like some opinions on this line up.
Please review all of the above items and see if all the components have ports on the motherboard and power from PSU, I wouldn't like to be missing something when I have assembled everything.
Also, I need to know if I am missing anything else to build this.
Thanks in advance.
