    Looks fine, I think you are missing a sound card.

    Are you sure the motherboard does not come with one built in?

    I didn't think about that nor did I check. If it doesn't come with one, no big deal, just order one.

    Could you just link to the parts. The uploaded doc keeps crashing Open Office.

    The parts should all work fine. The motherboard does have built in sound so you don't need a separate sound card unless you want one. It also has onboard graphics but I wouldn't use it for gaming.

    Your case is a mid tower case but your motherboard is a micro ATX form factor. It will fit and work, no problem but have you considered a full ATX motherboard? It will give you more expansion and RAM slots for more options later although you don't absolutely need it.

    BTW, you didn't include an operating system. Don't forget to include one in your budget.
