Default Please help a noob w/ a X-mas Build

So i'm going to be building my first comp this Christmas time. I'm not well versed in computers, so I need some help. This is what i have so far:

CPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115017

Mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2&Tpk=P31-DS3L

PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817341010

Ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231114

Video card: I want the 8800 GT, but there are so many choices, i assume some don't work with what i have. Can someone link me a 8800Gt that will work with this build.

This comp is going to be used 100% for games. Any comments, revisions, or even a whole new build are welcomed. And please try not to stray from the prices of the linked items, my budget is limited.

**edit links fixed, sorry about that**

Get this mobo instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128059

Here is a 8800gt that should work with the mobo: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...163&CatId=1558

all 8800GT's should work. Basically as long as the mobo has a pci-e port any pci-e video card will work with it. The other thing you need to think about is the psu, but the one you chose is good enough for a 8800GT.
