I just order my motherboard and CPU for my first build and am now tiring to choose my other parts. (I got a good combo deal from newegg!)

Motherboard: MSI 790FX-GD70 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813130223
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819103674

My main concern is if my memory is compatible with my Motherboard.
This is the RAM I was looking at buying: http://www.newegg.co...6820231189#spec
Will that memory work with my motherboard?

Also I am not sure how many watts I need. I am going to have a 500GB to 1TB Western digital Black Hard drive, Blu-ray player/DVD burner, Radeon 4850 HD video card (may do crossfire later on). I may add another hard drive later on as well. Will 550W be enough, or do I need more. I am look at CORSAIR power supplies, are they a good brand.

Thanks for all your help in advance!!

That memory appears to be compatible with the motherboard you have chosen.

This PSU is what I would suggest you get: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817139005
Corsair is the best brand for PSUs.
