As it should be, everything is compatable.

I think that build would be great. Nice choices, although i'm not sure about the ASUS mobo. I haven't heard much of anything good or bad about their boards. AFAIK, it gets the job done. If you're planning on OCing, might want to go MSI or even DFI. DFI is a bit expensive, but has the greatest OCing ability.

Then you should be fine with what you've got. It was only a suggestion anyway. If anything, i'd change the hard drive to a Seagate, but that's just me. I've had absolutely no trouble with them, so i prefer them, but again, might just be me.

Is the DVD drive you showed the one you already have?
