Default What Motherboard/Vid Card To Get??

I'm looking at making a computer and here are all of my current parts except for motherboard/vid card... I started out with really cheap ones but I changed my mind and want to get them so that they'll support some better parts/performance. Here are the parts so far:

Processor

Case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811153031

Floppy
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16821103203

Hard Drive
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144233

RAM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820145026

here are the motherboard/vid card i had chosen originally... I'd like to get something a bit nicer.

Mobo
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813185010

Vid card

I will not be using the computer for a whole lot of hardcore gaming. Mainly for every day uses with some speed and then good for editing videos via small programs like windows movie maker.

Thanks

EDIT: I decided to keep that mobo and upgrade to the following vid card

if it's for day to day uses like email and what not.. it's looks like it would do the job for stuff like that.

that memory will not work with that motherboard. That motherboard supports DDR 266 memory, you had DDR 400. This memory would work though.
