Never use a WDC green as a primary drive. They're quiet, don't produce much heat or use much power (which is why it's green) with a trade-off of being slow. A primary drive should be a 7200rpm drive like a WDC black or an SSD. The rest of the build seems future proof.

This is a good pc for gaming. For a motherboard you should buy an AM3+ motherboard with PCI express 3.0. It should come from a trusted manufacturer like asus, msi or gigabyte.
