Regarding the parts listed in post 96:

What is the exact name and model of that EVGA power supply with 500 watts? Do you have a direct link to it?

You've chosen a B150 motherboard. It may be fine for your purposes, but it's targeted at businesses not home builders. I don't know details of the chipset. You need to investigate that motherboard to confirm it has the enough ports, slots, and features to do what you need to do---gaming mostly. You particularly need to investigate if it is a good match for a high-powered video card. I can't help you there---I don't use video cards or B150 motherboards.

About the ssd, should i buy the SSD 120 GB instead of the 1tb hdd for now? And when i have enough money ill buy the 1tb transfer all my files to it except my os?

And i cant buy stuff from newegg as the shipping fees are insane.

Have you got a picture of your case and the hardware inside it?

What extra wiring will i have to buy if any?
