Exclamation New Custom PC Builder

Hi everyone,

Thank you for clicking on my post.

I am planning to build my first PC, which i hope to use for some gaming such as skyrim.

However, since it is my first time building a PC, i am not sure if the parts i have chosen are good.

Here are the parts i hope to purchase:

Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+ Motherboard - ATX, Socket AM3+, AMD 970 Chipset, AMD FX, 2133MHz DDR3 (O.C.), SATA 6.0 Gb/s, RAID, 8-CH Audio, Gigabit LAN, USB 3.0, CrossFireX Ready at TigerDirect.com

CPU: Buy the AMD FX-8350 Eight-Core 4GHz AM3+ Processor at TigerDirect.ca

GPU: Buy the MSI Radeon HD 7750 2GB GDDR3 Video Card at TigerDirect.ca

Hard Drive: Toshiba HDKPC03 DT01ACA100 1TB Hard Drive - 1TB, 7200 RPM, SATA, 3.5 at TigerDirect.com

I realize i am still missing the case, ram, and PSU but i believe that is it please correct me if i am wrong.

For the RAM i believe that i require ram that is DDR3.

I am not sure about the PSU because i do not know how to calculate it. Therefore, i would appreciate it if you could assist me. As well as tell me if all the parts i have chosen are good or compatible or if you would recommend something else. In addition, for the case do i only need to find a case which supports the power supply?

Thank You.
