Your board takes ddr3 memory so the memory you have chosen will not work.

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM

You can get this motherboard for $10 more, if you're going to be using the integrated graphics, you should probably go with this motherboard.

Also, this motherboard has the ability to unlock extra cores on your CPU (If your CPU CAN unlock.)
The motherboard you selected, doesn't have that ability.

If your Phenom II X2 545 you picked out can unlock, this motherboard could potentially make it a Phenom II X4 B45 or B50.

(Southbridge 710 or 750 are required for unlocking CPU cores.)
