Default Rig Compatible?

This is my first time building a computer, and I don't particularly understand all these sizes and compatability. I want you all to check out my rig, and see if everything fits together perfectly so I won't have any trouble at all.

What I'm wondering is. Will everything fit in the case? Will everything fit on the motherboard? Are the DDR3 and intel motherboard compatible and work well with the i7 quad-core? :P thanks.
