I went on newegg.com and bought parts to build a PC. I just need to know if I'm missing anything, also if any recommendations would be nice. Thanks

There are several issues with this computer.

1.  your CPU and motherboard do not have the same socket.  If you see how the motherboard says "LGA 1150 Intel" in it and the processor says "AMD" and "Socket AM3+" in it, that means they are not the same socket.  they either both need to be intel 1150 or both amd AM3+

2.  the motherboard you chose has a built in network adapter, so you do not need the Intel network adapter, and Im sure you do not need a $71 wifi card so if you want you can get a less expensive one and it should work.

3.  If you purposefully put the RAM on the list twice, you can not use Windows home edition with 32 gigs of ram (2 sets of 16)  if you did not mean to put the RAM down twice, you are fine.

4.  speaking of Windows, I do not know what Operating System you plan on using, but if it is Windows, you are going to need to buy a license.

If you respond I will get notified and we can work on this issue together

This build will not work.

 

The most glaring issue is with the CPU, you can either keep that CPU or keep that motherboard, but one will need to be replaced due to compatibility.  You can keep the motherboard and get an LGA 1150-based CPU, or keep the CPU and get an AM3+ motherboard.  You cannot use your selected CPU and motherboard combination.  As a suggestion, you can either keep your CPU and get the GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 motherboard, or, you can keep your motherboard and get the Intel Core i5-4690 CPU.

 

The network adapter is included with the motherboard, so it is unnecessary.  Your wireless network card is needed if you want to use that with your PC.

 

You will need a copy of Windows to run this PC.  Windows 7 Home Premium does not support more than 16GB of memory, however, all versions of Windows 8 can support much more than that.  Here is a listing of RAM limits for Windows.

I looked up the link and I cant understand what this means, If I'm running windows 7 ultimate on a 8GB of ram does this mean that the other 4GB will not be used. please paraphrase.

 

Version : Windows 7 Ultimate 32BIT

Limit on X86: 4GB

Limit on X64:192GB

The limit for 32 bit versions of Windows 7 is 4 Gb for ALL versions except the Starter Edition which is limited to 2 Gb.  The Starter Edition was often supplied pre-installed on cheap laptops, it was not sold retail.

 

The limit for 64 bit versions of Windows 7 is:

 

Home Basic (not sold in all countries): 8 Gb

Home Premium: 16 Gb

Professional, Enterprise & Ultimate: 192 Gb

 

So if you have a 32 bit (x86) version of Windows 7 Ultimate, it can use up to 4 Gb.  If you have a 64 bit (x64) version of Windows 7 Ultimate it can use up to 192 Gb.

Ok the ram is a double post im only getting 16gb (2X8gb) as for operating system im planing on getting Win 8.1. My laptop has it and its good for what I need (gaming, surfing the net, and animating). Which one would you think would you change the motherboard or the CPU? Ill take the wifi card off my list as well.

I would change the CPU to intel, and get an SSD for windows C drive, and another HD for D drive.

As bludshot said, I would change the CPU to intel, however you do not need to take off the wifi card, you need to take off the wired card.  You do not need the wired ethernet card because it is built into your motherboard, but you do need the wifi card because your motherboard does not have wifi support built in.
