I'm planning on building a computer for the first time, I have some questions, naturally :D

K So here are the parts:

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16811144041
Power Supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817339025
Processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819115036
Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813186146
CPU Fan: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16835186134
Video Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814130424
Memory: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820148262
Hard Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16822148395
CD/DVD Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16827118030

First off, are all these parts compatible with each other?
Second, Am I missing anything?
Third, Any overall suggestions?

I'm trying to keep it under $750

Thanks!

What will you be using the computer for?

Yes, everything their is compatible with each other. But there's a few things I see that I would change.
The case and the PSU are the first thing's, I consider the PSU a vital part of any build and I always use a trusted manufacturer for it. I'd go with this instead.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16817139008

Their is less watts, but that PSU is more efficient and is more than enough to power your system. If you want to stick with the PSU you listed then it's your choice, but I wouldn't.

And that case doesn't seem to great either, it has a PSU with it... But you don't need that, and the reviews of the case itself aren't too pleasant. For $5 more you can get an Antec 300. Which is a great case!
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16811129042

Anyway them is the 2 thing's I would change, but with $750 I changed a few other things too, this is better.

DvD Rom
Antec 300Case
WD Black Hard Drive
9600GT GPU
2x2GB OCZ 1066mhz RAM
P5Q-Pro Mobo
E8400 CPU
F7P CPU Cooler
Corsair PSU

If you want to game you can squeeze in a 4870 which is a better card.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814131140

Total price of that if you get a 4870 instead is $710 with rebates.
Total with the 9600GT is $673 with rebates.

Alternatively here's the new quad core from AMD. When looking back at the 2 builds, I would get this one over the other, it's a quad and it's alot better buy right now.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16827151187


DvD Rom
Antec 300 Case
WD Black Hard Drive
9600GT GPU
2x2GB Crucial DDR3
GIGABYTE GA-MA790XT-UD4P Mobo
PII Deneb CPU
Mugen 2 CPU Cooler
Corsair PSU
Total is $755 with rebates but worth it! If you get this though you must update the BIOS on it ASAP.

But seriously, get the AMD build. P.s: What OS are you using?

To OP: You cannot post links to a website...where the screens are behind the secure filter.

If you see https in the address...you cannot link to it.

Looks pretty good, I would change the case for the 300 still. And the HDD for the Caviar Black.

Do you intend to overclock the CPU?

well the person who gathered these parts for me said that I don't need to overclock it, this can computer should be able to handle games pretty well, right? And why do you think the other hard drive is better?

Well it would work fine, I just like Oc'ing as you can get more for free but it's not necessary really. And the Black versions are slightly faster(although I doubt it's noticeable, the green are more eco friendly. But the Samsung F1 is also a good buy too if you want!

My personal preference is the Black version, but the green looks good too and their both a good buy.

I see, I think I'm gonna stick with the green because overall the parts add up to about $715 which is perfect for me. Thanks for all your help!
