I have been looking for the best computer for the best price and was wondering if this would be a good computer. I will be playing a few games on it but mostly just Web browsing and playing Minecraft.
I was thinking about buying this one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883155413 but i think it would be better if i build my own.
Is it all i need?
Will it all fit together?
Is the Power supply enough?
Will the Mother board fit in the case?

Alienware is horrific and charge so much for what the components are worth.

Your build isn't the best as you can get a better GPU for around the same price, the motherboard and CPU may not work as chances are you'll need a Sandy Bridge CPU to flash the BIOS so Ivy Bridge can work with it. Some motherboards come flashed already but it's pretty much impossible to tell unless you try it so just get a Z77 chipset board.

I've made a build around $800.

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811129180 (You could look at the Antec Gaming Series One unfortunately it's out of stock.)
CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116504
Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157293
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231455 (Yeah, it's 1866MHz speed but it's on sale for $30.)
GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150617
HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136769
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256071
ODD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135204
Cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099

Total: $809.91

If it's too much then you can drop the cooler for now and use the stock one just don't overclock with it until you get the aftermarket one. The Hyper 212 EVO should be able to get you a nice overclock of about 4.2GHz-4.3GHz though really it's impossible to tell as not all CPU's are a like. Some overclock better, some don't.

Also if you happen to have a spare $10 or so you could look at the Rosewill HIVE 650W PSU, it's a beast and dirt cheap plus it's semi-modular so you won't have a ton of cables just lying around in the case.

Edit: You could actually get this case, it's cheaper than the 302 and has adequate cable routing options and airflow.
