The memory you have selected may have problems with the motherboard you selected (memory @ 2.0 volts, motherboard @ 1.8 volts). I'd probably spend $3 more and get this 2x2GB set

Since this system is for gaming, I'd also probably swap out the graphics card for this ATI HD 3850 for only $10 more than the 9500 GT or the HD 4670 Tenaciousley recommends.
