Hey everyone, this is my first time building a PC. Is there anything important that I need to know about, or any incompatibilities with my part list? Since my case is not compatible with an optical drive, how should I install Windows on my PC? Also, do I need to buy a PC toolkit?

You don't need to buy a toolkit to make your PC however magnetic screwdrivers are very helpful.

I would highly recommend putting an SSD in that build, if you just want to put windows in the ssd, get the TRION 150 120GB: http://pcpartpicker.com/product/8xs8TW/ocz-internal-hard-drive-trn15025sat3120g

Only $40. and it will immensely increase boot time

If you want to put games and whatnot in it, get the MX 300: http://pcpartpicker.com/product/rrvZxr/crucial-mx300-275gb-25-solid-state-drive-ct275mx300ssd1

Other than that, looks great! (could go for a cheaper and smaller case though)
