hey guys, I'm kind of a noob at building computers and my friend said if I got all of the parts then he would show me how to put it together, anyways I dont want to seem like to much of a noob and dont want to hassle him too much so can you tell me if all of these parts are compatible?

In 1 word: Yes

But, there are a few more things you need:

Case
CPU Cooler (recommended)

and of course the occasional case fan just for some airflow, unless the case comes with these.

What case are you using? or is your friend providing you with one?

Everything is compatible, but if you main goal is gaming I think going for an i5-760 + a P55 board could save you a few $$$ you could put to better using toward a GPU upgrade.

if you're going to do intel, do yourself a favor, wait 1 week for Sandy Bridge.

you can get a Samsung F3 1Tb drive for the price of that 640GB Drive.

the 750W PSU is probly overkill for a single 5850. a 650W should be enough even for crossfire.
