Does this motherboard seem like a good choice for this build?

I would be using this build for basic gaming, and basic video editing. If it helps you understand what I'm looking for, I like how it supports DDR3 memory, and is made specifically for the AM3 processors, so it is fully compatible. Thanks a lot for the help.

PS: Another little question, the case I plan on getting is the Cooler Master Haf 932, which has 4 usb headers. This mobo and MANY others say they support 3 usb headers, expandable to 6. How would you do this? Thanks for the help in advance.

Get the 710 at tiger direct; it's only $109.99. Check their video card prices also. It looks like newegg raised their prices last night. The video card I recommended to someone yesterday is $17 higher today at the egg. The motherboard should work fine, but I'm not an overclocker. I sold another asrock board to someone, and he was able to overclock his cpu 33%.

ya im getting kind of angry at both of them... i thought that i was going to save a lot at newegg by getting the 710 from them, but then they raise it over night. im also kind of angry at tiger because they stopped selling the Haf 932 (a little overkill for my budget system but when i saw it i had to have it). i don't understand why they would do that, it was the top sold case on their site. now i have to buy it for more from newegg.

but yeah that was kind of off topic. thanks for letting me know the prices changed i probably wouldn't have noticed that.
