Default New to upgrading computers, could use some help...

I have taken apart my computer completely and rebuilt it numerous times, so I know the mechanics of a computer, recently I have realized I need quite a bit of upgrading. So I went to the local gamestop and bought a video card, since they do not sell Motherboards or CPUs, I went to www.Newegg.com... I just want to know if everything I bought go together, I do not want to have to ship back the stuff I got.

Newegg.com - JetWay JM26GT4-D3-LF AM3 NVIDIA NF6100-430 (MCP61P) Single Chipset Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

yep, that all looks in order.

CPU falls within the motherboard's maximum wattage and voltage specs, and is socket AM3 like the mobo. GPU is just PCI-e x 16 compatible, which is on all modern mobos really.

RAM is DDR3, and therefore compatible with the mobo.
