Haven't made a build in almost 10 years. Im currently running a 3.1GHz P4 with 2gb ram and a AGP HD 4650(that's how long its been) I just want to know if you guys could take a look at this rig im planning to setup and I just want to make sure everything's compatible. Im using an IVY Bridge i5k so im more concerned if it will be compatible with the ASUS motherboard I chose right out of the box or if the board needs to be upgraded first(dont want to get burned as I dont have a sandy bridge to upgrade)
Anyways, here's all relevant info and parts list:

Budget Range: negotiable
System Usage from Most to Least Important: This system will be used hardcore at pretty much everything you can think of.
Parts Not Required: Keyboard, mouse, speakers, monitor,HDD,SSD, LAN card(already updated and bringing over from old rig)
