Ok, I have built my own machines in the past but it was long enough ago that my hardware knowledge is completely obsolete.

I want to put together a desktop for home that I can do some gaming on (wow, skyrim, etc) without spending a lot of money

I have all the peripherals, and I can figure out the memory, case, HD and stuff but I am lost as far as the mobo, cpu and video go.

Are these ok for what I want? Will they work together? Am I missing something better for a lower or slightly higher price?
I'd like to spend no more than $400 on these 3 components and I would like them to be reliable.

Heres what i have:



GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Model #:GA-970A-UD3

EVGA 01G-P3-1556-KR GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) FPB 1GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
Model #:01G-P3-1556-KR

AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor FD4100WMGUSBX
Model #:FD4100WMGUSBX
