Ok so i'm hopefully going to build a new gaming computer within the next few weeks. Since this will be my first time building one i would really like some advice or some direction if i've done something wrong. I've picked out the parts for my budget ( about a grand would be ideal for me) so far and i would like to see if they will be compatible, and if i could have picked something better. Thanks!! BTW i will probably be playing GW2 and Diablo 3 on this.

Feel free to bash on it as it's my first setup i really kinda went with what i thought would be a good setup.

Case
HDD
PSU
MOBO - i think this is a micro board, and i'm not sure if thats good or not?
CPU

Haha forgot RAM =/ it had gone off the deal so it was removed from my shopping cart but probably a dual stick 8GB setup for right now. Not sure whats a good reputable brand though. Also forgot a video card haha those for me are hard to pick out i've got no idea whats good anymore. Feel free to offer up a good one thats not terribly too expensive. Thanks again!

Then hoping to get windows 7 ultimate but not sure yet then an asus drive, and then an intel 120gb SSD for OS and games.

@Flanders2, Not a builder but, your link shows nothing other than an empty cart.

Edit: okay parts now showing after your edit.

Try using this website. You pick each individual part and it'll only allow you to choose ones which are compatible.
