So this being my first rig, will all of this stuff work together? I want to make sure I've got the right hardware when I buy.

howcome you dont wanna take that combo i posted before? i know its your money and ultimately its your decision what you spend your money on, but its a really good deal.

if you wanna save a little on the mobo, either one of these will work too.

real nice setup there.

one last thing, do you already have an optical drive?

if not, just add this one and youll be set.
