Wow, the RAM on TigerDirect is listed as "10666MHZ"...obviously a typo.

All the parts will work fine together.

Yeah the memory, video card and motherboard are all compatible with each other. For next time what you need to compare is that the memory channel type (dual vs triple) is the same on the memory modules and the motherboard. Then look at the memory standard (1066) on the memory and the motherboard and make sure those match. As for the video card it is PCI-E (all should be PCI-E nowdays anyways) and then make sure your mobo has a PCI-E slot (all should nowdays). Only thing I would recommed is not getting a micro board unless you acutally do need to save space (if space is needed will the 8.25" x 4.37" video card size fit in your case?)

Depends on how much you are looking to spend. The Asus p55 boards are great, I own one myself in my girlfriend's desktop and they cost about $150-$190. Only real downside to these guys is that they usually(always?) only support dual channel DDR3 instead of support the triple channel capabilities of this type of ram. If your spending a good deal of money buying the i7 processor + triple channel DDR3 memory, and she will be playing video games, then I would get a motherboard that also supports triple channel memory. These guys are bit more expensive, the one that I have cost $260 and it is the EVGA X58 FTW3 132-GT-E768-KR, however you can probably find cheaper mobo's that support triple channel ddr3 .

You can also check out How to Build a Computer | Parts Selection! for a few different computer builds depending on what your budget is.

Is your mom going to be gaming? I think that video card is a bit overkill lol.
