I've decided to build my own computer and after researching for a week I think I've finally decided on a cpu, motherboard, and ram. Could use some suggestions and comments if these three will work together?

I want the motherboard to have DDR3 at least 1333 and support the amd chip. I'd also prefer it to have on board video but I'm willing to skip out on that if I have too. But I really don't want to spend any more than $150 on the motherboard. Any suggestions on this would be greatly helpful.

I already have a dvd burner, hard drive, computer case, power supply, and a copy of windows 7. Just need the motherboard, cpu, and ram. I may add a video card later.

Any and all comments are welcome.

I'm guessing that everything would work together since nobody has commented otherwise.

I have decided to go with this motherboard however as it has everything I want.

I'm also going with the Athlon Phenom II X2 550 cpu and the Ram previously mentioned.

If anyone cares to comment it would greatly be appreciated as I really have no idea what I'm doing. :)

Yep looks good, just make sure to double check that the CPU is listed on the motherboard's CPU Support List page, you can find it on the manufacturer's website.
