This is my first time building a computer so I was wondering if anyone can give me advice on anything I have done wrong.

I do not plan to overclock.

I also need someone to help me choose a motherboard for this build. THANKS IN ADVANCE!

Tower : Cooler Master HAF 912

CPU : I am wondering if I should get the old sandy bridge i5 or go with the new ivy bridge i5.

GPU : Radeon HD 6950 2GB

PSU : Antec 620W

RAM : Patriot G2 Series 8GB

HARD DRIVE : Seagate 1TB 7200RPM

OPTICAL DRIVE : Sony Optiarc

SOUND CARD : Creative Labs Sound Blaster

MOTHERBOARD : For this I am wondering between three motherboards. I do not completely understand motherboards at this time so I'm hoping someone can help me choose one. Also I rather spend a little more for a good mobo that will last me a long time. These are the ones I found.

Are my video card CPU and PSU all compatible with each other? And is there anything wrong with these parts and any suggestions on new ones? Also please help me find a motherboard lol. THANKS!

Get the IB 3450. PCIe 3.0 will be of great use in the future.
