Default Building my first computer from scratch

Hello everyone! I've decided to do what I've always wanted to do and build my own computer from scratch. I know a decent amount about the components that go into computers, but I wanted to just double check to see if I've missed anything and to make sure everything is compatable. I've put everything together using newegg.com and below are all of the components I've picked out. Suggestions are also welcome, and I'm trying to stick to a budget of around $1,000.

Default Re: Building my first computer from scratch

Nice build. I would consider adding more RAM.

Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-8GAO

For another $15 you get 2x the memory.
