Will these parts work together and does it seem like a fair system for the money?
What Powersupply and case would you suggest for these parts?
These are all prices from Mwave, newegg doesn't ship to Australia, so are there any other cheaper sites with these parts?
Any other information i should know?
I like the Asus boards mentioned above but I would probably get
ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3
which is very similar but has the option of on board gfx
It also has the unlocking and auto overclocking features
No one knows whether the next generation of AMD cpu's will fit an AM3 mb , but I think you have the best chance of upgrading the cpu later if you stick with 890/880/870 northbridge and 850 south bridge chipset mb's
