I'm building a new gaming rig and I was wondering if these parts were compatible with the others?
Open to suggestions! :D
Alright, I'm just going to list everything and give you the link so you can check into further detail.

I'm open to any suggestions or anything, I'll be soo happy if you help me with the compatability though :DD
Thank-you verry muchh!
Also tell me If I'm Missing anything
Also I need a suggestion on a harddrive. Must be 1TB or higher, I'd like a 2 TB HDD, but if you can leave me suggestions or anything that'd help a lot. I just cannot decide, they all have a high fail rate, I just need a decent one for a gaming computer, thanks a lot.
P.s. I have a mouse and sound system already.
NOTE: I would really really like to keep this processor since its so cheap and better than the Intel ones,
also I need a link to some ram that would be compatible with this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8... motherboard.
and I guess I should be getting 2x4gb.

Take away the 900 watt power supply because that is overkill. Try this one instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8...
And you picked an Intel motherboard while you have an AMD Phenom II X6. Get this MOBO instead since I believe that motherboard you chose is Intel: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8...
As for the hard drive, get this one since it gets good reviews: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8...

Nice choice of mother board..WRONG choice of CPU!!! the AMD CPU wont fit that Mother board...you want an Intel 2600K...http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8... or at least the 2500K. Great ram..but much to much! your not likely to use much more than 4GB THe G. Skills is good but this would be better...http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8... If you feel you need more you can get another set later. The speed and timing is easily set up in the EFI bios. This hard drive will work well...http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8... since you have the Z68 chip set you might want to consider this SSD..http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8... for the OS...which should be http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8... at least. that rig would be a monster masher but for super gaming I'd be looking at a bit heaver video card something in the 560Ti realm or better.

1 - you want a Intel Core i5-2500K processor with that motherboard. An AMD Phenom simply won't fit.
8 GB (2x 4GB) is overkill for current games, 16 GB is simply ridiculous. Save yourself some money and upgrade the Video card to the GTX 560 for better gaming.
Somewhere you'll need to get a 64-bit version of Windows into that list
That should round out your system.

whilst enjoying video games like skyrim i could bypass with the cautioned standards a good quad middle processor like a i5 -3570k could be extra effective yet being on the cheap can upward push as much as medium settings , did no longer point out the motherboard interior the specs?
