I would suggest the following parts as replacement for the ones you have listed:

Motherboard's

Intel BOXDG35EC LGA 775 Intel G35 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

or

GIGABYTE GA-P35-S3G LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail

RAM

Kingston 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

or

CORSAIR 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail

Those are just 2 of the top choices each. I have seen too many Asus boards come back dead that I had to switch. Also OCZ ram can be very flaky. I would hate to see anyone spend that much money and have the ram not last as long as it can. Kingston and Crossair are the top 2 in my eye's.

There are a few things that I'd suggest. Firstly, I need to know what you intend on using this computer for.
Do you intend to overclock? Game? Browse the internet? Only use office applications? Video/photo edit?

I am looking to do gaming initially but then eventually (once i get the software) I will be using 3D engineering programs and also interested in some video/photo editing. I am nowhere experienced enought o do overclocking, I am still unsure of what it exactly is.
