Yet another "please fill out the new build form in the new build section".

Your choices are absolutely HORRID, you should be looking at a Pentium G/H61 setup in that price range. Fill out the form for advice.

Please read the first post, and edit your post. Otherwise, we won't know what the purpose of this build is, and how will we recommend parts?

Pentium G is a CPU series from Intel.

H61 is one of many motherboard chipsets. There are:
H61, H77
Z68, Z77
P67, P77(I think)

Z68 and Z77 are the best. They allow SLI, Crossfire, and overclocking. P67 and P77 also those, but they're a little bit more limited. H61 and H77 are the most limited. No overclocking, no SLI, and no Crossfire. If you need any of those features, I wholeheartedly recommend the Z77 motherboards, since they're only a few dollars more.

but still though I greatly cherish your views on the build I kind of just wanted to know if it would work without any compatibility errors
thanks

It is Z77. You missed: H77, Z75 and B75.

Well, in general the Z68/77 mobos are better quality. So, spend a bit more, and get something of higher-quality.
