Default help with my computer builds

Hello, I have 2 questions about my computer build

1. I am [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue ! important]building [COLOR=blue ! important]a [/COLOR][COLOR=blue ! important]computer[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] for the first time. I have chosen most of my parts, but since this is my first time, I want to make sure if this is a good build, Here are my parts

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B [...] PDKIKX0DER ~ ram
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B [...] PDKIKX0DER ~ mother board
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B [...] PDKIKX0DER ~cpu
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B [...] PDKIKX0DER ~ case
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B [...] PDKIKX0DER ~power supply
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B [...] PDKIKX0DER ~video card

so yeah, i was just wondering if thats a good build, or if you guys have any suggestions on what parts I should get instead.

2. I was wondering about my video card and my mother board.
My video card says that it's [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]PCI [COLOR=blue !important]Express[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] 3.0, but my mobo is only 2.0 Express.
I was also searching for 3.0 Express Mobo but couldnt really find any.
Will my Video Card work with my Current Motherboard ?

prob better lookin at 8gb ram (g-skill or corsair vengence)
that psu is to cheap. http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-430-Wa...s=500w+corsair

not sure that card is the best value either.
this would prob perform alot better.

and the 3.0 gpu will work on the 2.0, most games are not utilising the 3.0 speed yet.
I5 3570k oc'd 4.3Ghz, CM hyper 212+cooler, Gskill 8gb 1600Mhz, Gigabyte 7970hd oc edition, msi z77a-g45. Samsung 830 256gb SSD, WD cavier black Hdds
