Hi dgobrandon and welcome to Tom's hardware forum.

No that mobo isn't compatible with the T180 since that rig comes with a CPU socket AM2+ and DDR2 while the mobo only support CPU socket AM3 and DDR3.

3- Do u prefer Intel or AMD?

-trying to keep the motherboard under $120 but its not a big deal if it goes over
-Im going to school soon for game art and design in pittsburgh so its for both
school but I am a major strategy game addict so that is important as well
-I don't have any preferances at this point so either would be fine with me
-Yes lived in the US all of my life

what I was aiming for is new
-motherboard
-ram
-processor
as well as a decent graphics card but that isn't a priority at this point
I definatly want to try to keep it under or at least around the vicinity of $500
I want to have at least 8 gigs of ram to start but the potential to go to 16 if i need to later on

What PSU do u have? For only one GPU a 550W or 600W from a good brand like Corsairm Seasonic, Antec can handle the rig.
