Default Is this Compatible??

Hi I am looking to do my first computer build. I've worked with some motherboards and electronics before (Xbox, Xbox 360). I know this isn't too similar to a PC build but any experience helps right?

Anyway I am looking to use it for CAD software such as Autodesk Inventor and Solidworks. Also some video editing (probably Pinnacle 12 or 14).

I've read up on some sites and I know that compatibility is a big issue so could you help me out here? Also, if you think something would be better suited for me let me know! (Remember, I'm a noob)

Okay here we go:

PSU

Case


Motherboard

CPU

RAM: Do I need more ram? The mobo comes with some so i don't know...

Hard Drive

DVD Drive

Video Card


I still need an OS, mouse, and keyboard. I have a monitor. Any thoughts on that would be great.
Thanks everyone!

Everything looks fine and is compatible.
Enjoy your new computer.
I'm not 100% sure about your case choice.
Raidmax has some very crappy Q.C. for their cases.
I usually recommend Newegg.com - Rosewill Blackbone Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases to people looking for a good $40 case.

Why buy a microATX mobo? Why not a ATX?
You can get one of these combos:

Sometimes you just don't really need ATX...
I mean the only real difference is PCI slots?
Psh...

Is there a major difference between the micro and the regular one? I did read that the one I picked didn't have a wide variety of BOIS settings. Could someone please explain this? Also what is this "Overclocking" I've heard so much about??

Well, the cards are more far apart, if I'm not mistaken, so more air flow.

^ yeah but that's not the case with all atx mobos. like some of the 790fx mobos or that classified mobo that have like 7 x16 slots right next to each other, or just enough slots to fit 4 dual-slot cards.
