You have already purchased those parts or that is what you have chosen?

"So far I have" implies you bought them. They are decent choices just being clear.

If you'd like to use a single graphics card, then I'd suggest this board because it's cheap, and cheerful and a great bargain:

Plus, if you ever decide to get a little more juice out of your 945, it'll have some decent OC muscle to help you out. Otherwise, spring for the Gigabyte 790GX posted above if you want the option for Crossfire in the future.

For a GPU, at your resolution, either a Radeon 4770 or 4850 will be great. Chances are, you can pick up a 4850 for a better price than a 4770! Simply find one that suits your needs in terms of cooling/rebates.

As for RAM, the Mushkin sticks the poster above linked to are a great deal if you take advantage of the rebate.
