Change the RAM to this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231180

I overlooked this earlier, but the motherboard RAM frequencies skip 1600Mhz. Use the 1333Mhz I just linked. Everything else will work flawlessly. This will be a pretty good gaming build short of buying the expensive GPUs.

Wait! You changed the link that you had up before...This is a completely different build than what I saw on the newegg wish list link.

This new motherboard only supports DDR2, correct. The Mushikin RAM you have now listed on the OP will work. Is the case and PSU a combo? I've never heard of the brand. For PSUs, you really want to stay with Antec, Corsair, Thermaltake, and OCZ (PC Power & Cooling included). You also don't list a GPU. Without a GPU there's no gaming.

I highly recommend you go back to the build you had originally posted. It was much better than this one.

^ 2GB of RAM doesn't indicate how fast it will perform, just tells you how much simultaneous work you'll be able to do.
