The motherboard you linked is not compatible with the Processor. Phenom II X4 965 requires an AM3 (or AM3+) socket. I would suggest you get a socket AM3+ motherboard so that you can upgrade to an FX series processor if you need to. Also, there is no optical drive, however, you could do without that if you don't plan on installing the OS and any programs from a CD/DVD. I would suggest including one unless you can scavenge that from a previous computer.
