ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:I am looking to build a Gaming PC. I am pretty new to the world of hardware as I am more of a software guy. The two parts i have picked out that I am hoping to get are

Motherboard/Processor: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1270248&csid=ITD&body=MAIN
and

And GPU: http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/productdetail.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dhs&cs=19&sku=A2471188&~ck=baynoteSearch&baynote_bnrank=12&baynote_irrank=0

Any information that can be given would be extremely helpful. I was looking for answers on compatibles brands/parts. But if anyone would be kind enough to help me assemble a list to build the rest of the PC (Case, Power Source, and Other such things). Thank you so much!

Edit: I am attempting to stay under $500 dollars.
