Get this RAM instead: Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBXL
Same speed, but more cache, I believe.

I would go with an ASUS or Gigabyte motherboard. ASRock is a branch of ASUS, normally cheaper parts. Get like so: Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

No SSD? :P

That could work as well.

But I believe you need AM3+ if you ever want to upgrade your CPU to higher performing ones. Not sure though. I rarely deal with AMD.

Technically, no, you don't need one. But, like me, even if I don't OC, I like to keep my CPU as cool as possible.
