As far as I can tell everything you picked out will work together. However, I don't like the motherboard or the brand of PSU. #1 rule. Never shimp on quality or size of the PSU. It runs your whole system and a cheap one can take your whole system out with it. I recommend Seasonic, Corsair, Antec, XFX brands. There are people who like them, but personally I wouldn't buy an MSI motherboard. If you are planning to overclock, I would stay with Asus. That's my 2 cents.

You are way ahead of me, lol.

Alternate is the German equivalent to NewEgg. I sometimes buy stuff from them when I am in Germany. But this Alternate seems to be in the UK.

I have the MSI g45 gaming board and I am happy with it. I'm one of very few here that has good performance with MSI mb's. When I click the link for the psu it shows seasonic x series 650, that is a good psu.
