MOBO
ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3 :hello:  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I can't see the speed on the HD since the link is to the RAM, but as long as it is 7200 it should be fine.

Also, RAM is the biggest source of new computer problems. You may want to think about more than saving $5 here. You can get Crucial or Kingston with very low failure rates for pretty cheap too.

Otherwise it should be fine.

The Asus CD drive in my signature is $1 more and has much better reviews.

The HDD is 7200. Ram 1600 mhz, i'm really looking towards the G-skill Ripjaws or some corsair vengence since they have all positive reviews and are super cheap at compusa and ebay. And I heard plenty good about ASUS's drives so i think i might do that. thanks
