Default Building A New Computer - Help please

Hello, I just registered here after lurking these boards for the previous week or so.

I'm looking to build a new computer as my old machine decided to call it quits recently, this will be my first attempt, though I have some experience dis/assembling a few computers. I've been looking around at Newegg and i've gathered a list that i'd like some opinions on, and to see if some of you computer guru's could assure me that everything is compatible. Here goes...

Thermaltake Armor Series VA8000BWS Black Aluminum/Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811133154

GIGABYTE GA-965P-DS3 Socket T (LGA 775) Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128012

Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 ST3320620AS (Perpendicular Recording Technology) 320GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16822148140

RAIDMAX RX-630A ATX12V/ EPS12V 630W Power Supply 115/230 V CB, IEC, TUV, UL, CSA
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16817152026

Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 Conroe 2.13GHz 2M sharing L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115004

ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro CPU Cooler
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835186134

Creative Sound Blaster SB0570 Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16829102002

Patriot 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820220144


That's what i've come up with so far, as you can see I don't have a video card there, because I have a decent high end card already.
Any opinions / recommendations are much appreciated.

I plan on purchasing this when I get home, could someone give me a quick assurance that everything listed will be compatible with one another?

that mobo doesnt have onboard video, so what do you plan on doing for graphics?

i would recommend a 7900gs. personally, i believe it provides the best performance for the price.
