  1. yea man that setup will work great.....a few things to think about....gaming on a wireless connection is not there a reason you have to have wireless? (not a deal breaker thats for sure) and also are you planning on overclocking your cpu? if not you could go with an even cheaper motherboard.....if you were to go that route you could pick yourself up a small SSD for your will make the pc super snappy you will really notice a diff.

    heres a board that can still do moderate OC's for alot cheaper.

    also here is a ssd for cheap that is quick as hell...have built a couple systems with it and it really speeds things up over mechanical hdds
