Everything looks like it should work, but PC's are very complex and something strange can happen even if the parts work. I do have one concern though, your motherboard and videocard combination. The mobo you've selected does not have PCI express, which is used on many current video cards as well as up-and-coming ones. This does not pose a problem with the card you've selected, but future upgrades will be problematic. The Asus A8R-MVP paired with GeCube's PCI express version of the card you've selected would be an alternative that costs almost the same and is more upgradable.
