Default Motherboard question

I am going to build a gaming computer, and I was wondering if this motherboard would be a good one to get: ASUS KM400 Chipset Motherboard for AMD Socket A CPU, Model "A7V8X-MX SE" -RETAIL. It's quite cheap (approximately $62 at newegg), and it got five-star reviews, so it seems like a good buy. Is there a different motherboard for around the same price that would be better to get? Would the aforementioned motherboard be compatible with these parts:

If you have the time, just take a look at those links to see about the compatibility of the parts and of the motherboard you suggest. Thanks for the input guys.

Thanks, man. That mobo got four-star reviews, though. Have you built a computer with it before so you know it's good? Just wondering. Any other ideas guys?

it prolly got 4 stars since the ppl didnt no how to build it. Its a great mobo in my opinion no matter what they say. Nice onboard sound so i wuld suggest this board. They made an upgraded version of it asus e deluxe and its like 50-60 bux more in canada. The xtra features r not needed in the e dluxe and u wont go wrong with the one i told u to get.
