Are all these parts compatible?

by dangersaurus / November 17, 2011 9:49 AM PST

I decided it's time to get a new PC and thought it would be a good idea to build one rather than buy one pre-built to save money. I looked on newegg.com and found some parts and I'm not sure if they're compatible or not, and none of my friends know. I was hoping someone would be able to tell me if they are and point me to compatible ones if they're not.
And would I need a better power supply with this case? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811162059&Tpk=1243MA

The parts I need confirmed:

I'm new to building computer and I constantly get confused with all the odd product titles (RNX-N300, Llano 2.6GHz Socket FM1 100W, F1A75-V PRO FM1 AMD A75, etc.).

Everything looks to be in order. I assume you know that you need a HDD, and an ODD unless you have a USB one. Also, the sound card is large, so watch your case size. A mini tower might be too small. Everything else looks good.

Thanks for reply, and I am also getting an HDD and I'm not sure what the ODD is?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
