First PC Build

So I have been checking for parts on the internet for my first PC and I found all of them but I do not want to buy the parts without someones approval so everything will work and is compatible. Again this is my first PC build so the only knowledge and experience I have is from the internet.




Power Supply

CD Rom


Wi-Fi Adapter




I am also deciding wether to buy a windows 10 key from Kinguin. Any advice?
Also if you can could you see if this computer has a good price per performance?
Thank You

Just to get you closer

That cpu supports 1866 ram...native.
That mobo supports 1866 ram...native.

I'd shop for a 2x4GB kit @ 1866.
Think dual channel.

Another thought

That mobo has a usb 3 header.
Your case only has usb 2 ports in the front.
That will be a problem if you try to transfer large amounts of data via those usb 2 ports.
I suppose you could just go around in back and connect to a usb 3 port or run an extension cable to the front.

I'd shop for a case with usb 3 ports in the front.

Another thought response

Thanks for the responses they will help me a lot and yes, I have noticed that there are USB 2.0 ports up front but I have decided to put the PC on the desk so both sides are accessible.
