So here are all the Components that will be in my build! Be honest tell me what you think, and tell me what you think I should add! Keep in mind, I will be using this build for gaming, but not extremely hardcore gaming, things like DoD:S, CS:S, CoD4, and things like that.

your cpu is a gpu on your link.

Your mobo is a 1156, dated tech.

If you got an i3 2100 you will need a 1155 board.

recommend the hd 6770 for your gpu.

Also, is the DVD drive a SATA connector or IDE? You may need an adaptor as most 1155 MB's won't have an IDE connection.

Fixed the link, and no, I have an Intel Core i5 650 3.2GHz CPU. So, that's why I need a 1156 Socket Mobo

gpu is the weakest component for you system. However, it should meet your needs.

Do you already own the i5????

IF you don't i suggest you go with an 1155 motherboard and the i5 2300 or 2400 as it is a quad core and goes for the same price of your selected cpu.

Yeah, I do own the i5 Already

EDIT: Mine seems to be a Quad Core anyway, every program I run to benchmark it shows it benchmarking 4 cores, CPUZ states I have 4 cores, and my Intel CPU Usage monitor shows I have 4 cores as well.

What model of CPU did CPU-z say you have?
If it's really that Core i5-650 it has two cores. You might be seeing it reporting 2 physical cores + 2 logical cores since it does Hyperthreading, 2 threads per core.

I see you're changing out your BTX motherboard for a ATX replacement.
(and after giving out 2 BAs to someone who told you it was ATX, too).

You want to confirm what DelroyMonjo mentions. Your DVD drive from the 'old computer'... does it use a wide flat ribbon PATA/IDE cable to the motherboard? Or a narrower cable? That ASRock H55M MB doesn't have the old style PATA/IDE connector.

Yeah, I just decided to get a New Motherboard that is ATX instead, because after looking online, there were little BTX Cases for sale that were in My Budget, and realized I would save money get a new mobo+case. And Yes I have confirmed, it's not the IDE Connector, it's the newer, narrower cable. :D
