Hi BigDave,

The MB is a bit out dated as it has PCI slots.
Really needs to be all PCIe Slots.

Need a 650 Watt Power Supply if you buy a nice Video Card.

The HD you picked is 2.5 inch for laptops.
Need a 3.5 @7200 RPM for desktops.

Give it another go and see what you come up with.

pc part picker is not that reliable.

Is good to use to get organized but not very informational.
