Hello all, and thank you. This is my first box, and I'm kinda sure the parts are compatible, but I don't want to lay down a grand unless I'm dead certain. It would be a great help if I had some extra eyes that know more than me to look over these parts. It would also be nice to see if I'm going a little overboard on some of the parts. As long as it can run the Daz studio programs, Elder Scrolls: Oblivion and its worldbuilder, World of Warcraft,etc., without significant lag, I'll be happy. I'm hooking two monitors to it, if that helps any. I've got about 1200 for parts, and I already have a case, HDD, and optical drives. I plan on installing XP as well. I tried to future-proof this thing by about 3 years.

The only thing I would be concerned about is the ram. The voltages are from 2.2-2.35. I don't know what is good for 1066mhz ram, but I know sometimes motherboards do not like higher voltages of ram. I looked through the boards manual though, and it didn't say anything about voltages. You'll probably be alright.
