This is my first time building a computer so I was wondering if anyone can give me advice on anything I have done wrong.

I do not plan to overclock.

I also need someone to help me choose a motherboard for this build. THANKS IN ADVANCE!

MOTHERBOARD : For this I am wondering between three motherboards. I do not completely understand motherboards at this time so I'm hoping someone can help me choose one. Also I rather spend a little more for a good mobo that will last me a long time. These are the ones I found.

Are my video card CPU and PSU all compatible with each other? And is there anything wrong with these parts and any suggestions on new ones? Also please help me find a motherboard lol. THANKS!

As for your CPU, I would recommend the newer, 3570k rather than the 2550k/2500k.
They're priced very similarly, and the newer IB only offers incremental upgrades and no disadvantages, so why not?

As for the mobo, it seems both of your links are broken :S (also you mentioned three motherboards, but only 2 broken links).
