Default compatable?

Hello, I've recently been looking to build a new computer and I've had some trouble being able to pick the right mobo and hard drive i want. I picked these out and I was wanting to make sure the motherboard and hardrive are compatable because I was unable to tell here they are:

Thanks for the help :-D

Wrong section buddy. This belongs in the General Computer Hardware & Software section.

Moderators, move this please.

EDIT>>> You don't SCSI for normal computing, unless you plan to build some server or something. Even then, there are no normal motherboards that natively support SCSI, so you'll need a SCSI adapter that uses a PCI slot.

I would just settle with SATA 3.0Gb/s, it's not as fast as SCSI, but way more practical and cost effective.

EDIT Rev.2>>> Thanks to Lhuser for moving this.

For only $79.99, this would be a great match for that motherboard: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 (Perpendicular Recording) 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive.

alright, thanks for the help, althought i was kind of hooked on getting a 10,000 RPM HD as I have heard alot oabout them and how good they are.

will a 7200RPM HD perform almost as the same?

I am looking to build a gaming computer so I was assuming a fast HD such as a newer 10K RPM HD would be a good choice, am I wrong and a 7200K RPM hd will be just fine for me?

Thanks very much

7200 rmp is the speed that most harddrives use, it's definitely fast enough for gaming.

** Edit, now that I'm actually looking and making sure everything is right I'm having a tough time picking a powersupply, I was wondering if someone could help point me in the direction of a reasonably price 500W 24PIN psu.

Thanks very much

the vid card is compatible with the mobo.
I don't like Rosewill psu's, I'd probably go with antec or ocz.

Here's an excellent 500W PSU: Antec SmartPower 2.0 SP-500 ATX12V 500W Power Supply for $69.99.

It's the one I'm currently using. It has SLI support if you ever go that way and supplies 36A on the dual 12v rails.

The video card will be fine. The X1900 GT is a very good card, beats the 7900 GT in most tests.
