Default Building My Computer - TO ALL COMPUTER EXPERTS!

Hey to all the computer experts!! Ive recently decided to start building my own computer using newegg.com. My comp right now is only 3 years old but im tiried of having to upgrade the RAM and video cards and everything else that is out of date. In the end it will be just as expensive as building a new one. I have only had one computer and don't know much about it. Here are the links to the main body of "The Dream Machine." LOL. Everything could be better but im tryin to stay under 1000$. This is without monitor and other stuff. I just need to know if they will all work together. Thanks

Case:

Motherboard:
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813131196

Processor:
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16819115030

Video Card:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150182

Memory:

Please comment on this! I dont know if all the parts are compatible with each other. Thanks!

We can't see it...I think you need to make it public or something.

Like everyone else said, get the Core 2 Duo processor. Much better.

NEED WOW NOW - You can overclock Intel motherboards just fine.

You're wrong. The 680i OCs much better than any intel board.

I've had a few mobo's and have to say this is a breeze to overclock (680i) as much as i hate nvidia for their abysmal vista drivers , i love their chipsets.
