Yeah, that would be great.

Are you sure your happy with just a Mini ATX motherboard though? Are you sure it'd fit your case being that its a smaller model than the standard ATX boards?

Other than that, it looks perfectly alright, and definietly powerful, but remember, if you wanted to do overclocking or something, it'd probably be the motherboard setting you back if it wasn't as good as the other components (I've never tried that model so don't know for sure what its like)

My response would be to check some reviews out before hand.
The motherboard, apart from the PSU, is the most important thing on your computer, controlling everything the processor/RAM/GPU does.

If you needed too, I'd even drop the processor to the 3000+ (just as powerful really), and get a better motherboard, followed then by overclocking since you can.

Why not go with a normal size mobo... What are your current PC specs.
