Question hello- first build

hello - i need help with a computer build i am looking to do soon, it is my first one and while i am pretty sure i know how to put it together i am having a problem picking out parts
first- tech level: most around me say i am tech savy and i can build a computer, put in ram, and do basic html... but compared to most on this forum... i'm a noobie

anyways for my build i have a budget of $550-$650
heres the build i am looking at right now
Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Newegg.com - ASRock H55DE3 LGA 1156 Intel H55 HDMI ATX Intel Motherboardhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145262

Is there anything i should add/get rid of? I am looking to run Mass effect 2, and possibly Battlefield 3 later on this year, while i am not looking for super graphics i dont want 5fps...

Default Re: hello- first build

hiney to answer your question no it will not work. and gojomoso that cpu will not work with that motherboard. you might as well look at the new 1155 socket motherboards.

here's a link to newegg.com's new lineup they got in this past week

Newegg.com - Computer Hardware,Motherboards,Intel Motherboards,LGA 1155

hope that helps you out
