  1. bad choice on motherboard. it won't work work for your video card at all. It has one AGP and your video card is pci-e. And did you have a specific reason for a micro atx form factor? Not only that but it is rather slow by the current standards especially compared to the rest of your selection. Would suggest something like this:

    or at least something with pci-e expansion slots. hope this helps.
  2. Agree with Nerd you should not get a micro atx board with onboard video unless you're putting together a HTPC in which case you certainly could go with a much less expensive video card.
  3. Get the board mentioned above and also the E5550, its the same speed as the 6600, but cheaper.

    If your looking for a sound card, it depends on how much you want to spend. You can get the XtremeGamer for around 90.

    If you have questions msg me at AIM/Yahoo Maximus9102 :)

    Did you mean to say E6550? What is the AMD equivelant of that?
  5. Yeah E6550 lol, sorry.

    AMD equivelant is probably the X2 4800+
