Default Compatible Setup?

I am going to be building a new computer and just wanted to double check to make sure what I have picked is compatible/good picks. The computer will be mainly for gaming. Setup is as follows:

My main question is: Are those parts compatible with eachother?

Some other questions: What should I do for sound? Is getting a seperate sound card recommended for gaming, or is the onboard sound good enough? Also, would it be beneficial to get a second identical hard drive for RAID 0?

Thanks for any help.

that set up will be killer and i am ordering a similar system. ONly diff is my system will...have the a64 3000+. ALl parts are compatible. Also it is benefical setting 2 120Gb sata seagate hds in raid 0. Pretty fast imo. As for sound, your call. If you're a big sound fanatic, then get a sound card but i use onboard and it serves me for my gaming needs. Also all the parts are compatible.
