So there are a couple computer parts that i may be getting to customize my own desktop and I wanted to make sure that these parts would match up and work together in harmony without me jamming a processor, breaking, bending or in any other way making the computer not function. I am Still open to suggestions and would appreciate if you would give me more suggestions about the missing parts I have not listed.
Here are the parts thus far:

Thank you very much for your feedback. When I get it built I will post a few nice pictures of it.

Looks good. You know he's not playing around when he spends more on the motherboard than the processor :)

Excellent start so far! However you can swap those for equally, or more, powerful parts...

Motherboard: ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX - It is less expensive but offers the same functionality as your chosen board. I have this motherboard, it is quite sturdy. You will need to update your BIOS to accept the CPU below as it was just released, that is, until Asus sends out boards with the new BIOS already pre-installed. $189

CPU: AMD FX-8350 Vishera 4.0GHz - This is about 10% or so faster than the older 8150 for just a little more cash. $219
