Default Is all of this compatible?

I would like to know if I will run into any problems, if anything isn't compatible or if anything of these parts are just bad.

Here are three choices for motherboards, I was originally going to go with the AN8 32X, but it is out of stock, and i found there two other boards that look promising. Out of the three, im leaning towards the AN8 SLI, please tell me if this is a good choice for a motherboard.

ABIT AN8 32X Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI X16 ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard
ABIT AN8 SLI Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce4 SLI ATX AMD Motherboard


Here are the rest of the parts:


AMD Athlon 64 3700+ 1GHz HT Socket 939 Processor

CORSAIR XMS 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM

Western Digital Raptor 74GB 3.5" Serial ATA150 Hard Drive

eVGA 256-P2-N527-AX Geforce 7800GTX 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 VIVO PCI Express x16 Video Card

ASUS Black 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM IDE DVD-ROM

SILVERSTONE FM121 120mm 2 Ball Case Cooling Fan

A-Top XBlade AT859A-BK-2-C Black/Silver Steel/Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Rosewill 1.3 RE502-BLK ATX12V 500W Aluminum Power Supply 115/230 V cUL, FCC, CSA, CB, TUV, CE, NEMCO

MITSUMI Black 1.44MB 3.5" Internal Floppy Drive Model D359M3D/D359M3B

Yes, but I personally would go with this powersupply
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104954
Because the Rosewill one lacks reliability, or looks like it does anywho.

Does that power supply have enough power on the 12V rail and enough wattage to power the whole system with that 7800 GTX?

Yes, the FSP has more on the 12v. The PSU you selected is the old standard - 20 pin ATX instead of 24 - no PCI Express Power - no sata.

The Antec truepower 2 550w is very good.

I would go with the ASUS A8N-SLI Premium.

You may want to consider a better case also.
