Your board will not depend on FPS. Your other components, GPU, CPU, RAM, however, will.

Don't get that PSU. Get a Corsair, OCZ, or Antec.

Get something like this for the board: Newegg.com - ASUS M5A97 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

For HDD, is there any drives you can re-use? Willing to go with an SSD? HDD prices are kind of high now.

HDD - Hard Disk Drive, i.e. hard drive. It's the traditional device used to store data and install your OS (operating system, i.e. Windows or Linux) to. They're currently unusually expensive because some manufacturing plants were taken out in the recent Thailand floods.

SSD - Solid State Drive. New-ish storage devices, made of flash memory (like a USB stick, but higher quality and much faster) instead of physically spinning disks like in a hard drive. They're generally smaller than hard drives since they're new, but because of them being very fast, they are ideal for installing your OS to. Makes boot times faster, and most program installed on it open instantly. Typically they are much more expensive than hard drives but with the recent price hike in hard drives the gap has closed somewhat. I highly suggest getting a 60GB one if it's within your budget.

Cooling fan - what kind? For the CPU or case (the answer is yes in both cases)

You seem a bit new to building. If that's true, then you may find the following website helpful.
The animated guide to Building a PC. Learn to build a PC from scratch with PCitYourself!
It tells you the parts you need, gives you an explanation of the parts, and aides you in building.
