Hi. For the past couple of weeks I have been trying to a build a computer and these are the components I have landed on thanks to multiple forums and research on what is the most effective hardware for my money. I just wanted some more reassurance that when I put it all together it will run smoothly, thanks in advance.

You need a case to put all of it in and an optical drive might be something you need also.  If you can possibly spring for a solid state drive that would be the only other suggestion that I have.

You will also need an operating system.  What will this PC be used for?
