First, 8GB is enough for what you need. This is the mobo i juts got and I have no complaints, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168..., as far a hdd goes, i would get a 60GB ssd and in a month or so throw in a regular hdd for storage space. Cool Master fans seem to be pretty good. You have a lot going on in your post so lets answer it one thing at a time, lol

Firstly than you for the quick response :) 
Secondly if i get that mobo will i be able to keep the whole cost of the pc under 800$
Thirdly which brand should i get my 8GB ram for the value?
Also why is it smarter to get less space in SDD for more money?
Lastly which cool master fans should i get? is one enough? and depending on this which case do i then go for.. ALSO is everything else looking okay as in the CPU and the GPU? ALSO should i keep the mobo's LAN or get a seprate LAN? Thank you :)  and sorry for asking too much, im sorta new and i am tryna get a pc that i can use for school and gaming for upto 3 years!

Your bets bet it to add the items into a newegg cart. From there you can see your total and swap parts if you have to. If saving the $40 is worth it to you on the mob that thats fine.

The one I built is better. The ssd will make a world of difference. I would put the OS on a SSD. Also, the mobo I picked is much easier to use, esp for a first time builder. The user interface is much more str8 forward that a traditional bios.

Also, the Power Supply you have is weak for a gaming rig. The one I had is better. Not as known of a name brad but that should not be a problme.
