    First ever PC build!

    Hey, this is the first time I'll be building a PC,, so just wanting to check that all the components I've decided on are compatable and good for that price bracket. I'm looking to play WoW/Skyrim maybe BF3 + other new games that will come out in the future. On that note I'm looking to "future proof" to an extent. Budget before Microsoft's blood money is around £1000, this is where I'm at so far:

    Corsair Obsidian Series 650D

    Intel CPU Core i5 Unlocked 2500K

    ASUS 1155 P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3

    Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler

    Corsair Memory Vengeance LP Blue 8GB DDR3 1600 MHz

    650W Corsair Enthusiast Series

    120GB SSD Corsair Force Series 3 Series SATA III - 6Gb/s Solid State Drive

    MSI HD 6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition/OC AMD Radeon Graphics Card - 2GB

    LG GH24NS70 24x DVD Writer

    Dual-Band PCI Adaptor 5Ghz/2.4Ghz

    Windows 7 Home Premium

    So, that's what I'm planning to use.

    A few notes before people dive in; yes, I know the case is a stupid price and I could get a better one for less money, but top of my list was ease of use as I've never done this before. I know I don't need 16GB of RAM, but it's cheap as hell these days so I thought why not, means I can mess around with RAM drives if I feel like it for fun. And yes, I play with wireless, my PC is in too awkward a position in regards to my phone line to be able to use wired, no choice here. Last thing is that I'm not willing to buy a Mechanical Harddrive currently due to ridiculous prices, will make do with 120GB SSD until they sort themselves out.

    But yeah, go wild, what's good? What's not so good? Have I missed anything? Any better suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!
