Yeap that Mobo is great you can upgrade to phenom later. and everything else looks great have fun. if your going into hte store to get your parts. your gona have to tell them to send it directly to your house because they dont take it in store anymore and wait for you to pick it up.

i say this because they can order parts because they dont always have every item in stock.
