I personally have never really heard of that mobo so just be on the safe side and grab this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . DO NOT GET THAT POWER SUPPLY PLEASE. ok please don't get that powersupply coolermaster is a tier 3 power supply company and it may blow up and take your whole computer with it, instead i would get something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... .
