I suggest getting a motherboard with intel P35 chipset.
Since you're only getting 2GB of RAM, I highly recommend you just get the 32bit operating system. The P35-DS3L is a great board that retails for about 100$.

Again, I strongly recommend you purchase a P35-DS3L motherboard over the 680i. With the additional money you'll have either get a GPU upgrade or a CPU upgrade.

Sure they'll replace the PSU, the problem is, when I PSU dies it usually takes your whole computer with it. Whether or not it's worth the risk is up to you.
But the PSU has a really good warranty and I already purchased it. What is so bad about it? I bought it because it was apparently a decent priced 600W PSU and also because I had read good reviews on it.
Reviews from Newegg mean nothing, and there are very few PSU reviews I trust, as many people don't have enough equipment to properly test PSU (costs upwards of 15,000$ to do).
While the PSU will power your rig, the components that create that unit are not of high quality.
