Okay so I have most of the parts planned out, but I don't know that it's all compatible. Also I need to know if I am able to install that video card into the motherboard despite the fact that it already has an on-board video card. A different motherboard is fine with me if it's around the price range. Lastly I need a cheap but quality Hard Drive from Newegg. My budget is around $600 for the entire computer, so I don't have much left for the Hard Drive. About $50 but I can go higher I suppose (Unless I find a Shellshocker deal from NewEgg like I did the PSU it's not looking good...) All help is appreciated, thanks.

That's a good PSU but not a bargain. This is less expensive and will las into Video card upgrades.

Okay I already bought the power supply (cost about $35.00 from a shellshocker+Mail-in rebate)
The Motherboard looks really good, I suppose I will just have to save up a bit more and not cut corners on it thanks for the suggestion
I'm not sure which case I'll be getting but I was actually looking at that one too
Thanks for your help! Are all of my current items (If I swap my Motherboard with yours) compatible?
I would make sure you have a large enough power supply to support you mother board and any extra gadgets you may want to add later on. For the case I would suggest something with a little extra cooling, as your boards will get hot quickly, probably something with one fan in front, one in back, and one on the side. The idea is that the front will bring cool air in, the side will bring cool air straight on the main boards, and the rear will pull out the hot air out. Just make sure everything will flow easily.
I think this thread is really informative. I learned from it. I however would change a few things, for an updated version of this post and more
