Check my build please :)

My first build, meant to be a Gaming PC. I was shooting for around $1k, ended up being a little under (yay). I just want to make sure that there are no obvious compatibility issues (dont think there are) and I didn't make any terrible choices in the build.

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157250
CPU&video card (combo): http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.662467
RAM:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231428
HDD:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148697
Case:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147153
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817815009

I'm also looking at two mobos (comparision page) that seem to be almost the same, but one is significantly cheaper. I can't figure out why one is much cheaper than the other and if its worth going with the cheaper one.
