Hey there. I'm building my own computer for the first time, and want a gaming machine, do you guys think the parts i've chosen are a decent choice and if they are compatible with one another?
I want a DDR2 motherboard that will be compatible with future top-end video cards, although i'm most likely going to start out with the 4870.
Many thanks! My budget is about 1000$ canadian; oh and I have a 24 inch monitor with 1920 x 1200 display.

You've put together a nice build. Here are my suggestions:
You'll want to stick to a 2x2GB setup instead of 4x1GB. Four sticks is harder on the motherboard. That RAM you linked to is $90 before rebates for 2GB. This Mushkin RAM has fast timings, low voltage, and is cheaper for 4GB:
