Question What do you think of my planned PC build?

I've decided on the final setup (or at least I hope it's final) and I'd like your thoughts. My only worry is I've slipped up somewhere and there's a component not compatible with the rest of the system! I've never built a PC from scratch and because some of the stores I'm buying from don't take returns unless the component is broken, I want to be sure I'm buying the right stuff you know! So could you look through it all and make sure it's compatible? I'd be sooo greatful!

I have had it for almost a year now, and even though it is that cheap now it works awsome. Looks good and performs well.
