get a better psu, a MUCH better psu the psu is the most important part which is usually overlooked a crappy psu could fry everything or not allow everything to work to full spec and then you'd be royally screwed... i'd spend at LEAST 50 on a good psu... 600watts or more 80% efficiency and at least dual 20A rails, also get an 8800GT not MSI or something get EVGA, XFX, PNY some good reputable brand 256MB 8800GT runs $209 on newegg, that graphics card will run great with the 6000, as for the mobo i wish i had mine so i could tell you more, but im getting that same one... hopefully its good other than the psu and gpu it looks good..

EDIT: links below, also i'd get the monitor below instead of the one you listed, its cheaper and just as good...
