Lightbulb Build Help

Hey everyone, I was hoping to receive a little help regarding putting a new computer together. I'm not very experienced in this task, so I'm a bit hesitant to go at it alone. Any tips, hints, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I've posted several components below (all located on newegg) that I believe would be pretty decent; please let me know if all of these pieces are indeed compatible and if so, if any are considered overpriced at all.
