Critique of first build
So, I'm planning on building my first computer probably within the next week or so. It's loosely based on a Tier 3 gaming build, and the purpose is mostly gaming. Here are the parts I've been considering:

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...067296&SID=

Video card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...067296&SID=

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6813157254

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6820231311

Hard Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6822145299

DVD Drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6827136240

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6817151094

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...7144-L015A

In total, after shipping, it adds up to $706.45. Price is a strong driving force here; I don't want to spend more than $750, and lower is much better.

A few questions. Firstly, is this motherboard of satisfactory quality, etc, and will it fit into a gaming build well? I'm frankly not very well versed in different motherboards. Secondly, I wondered about the hard drive. The title mentions it is a "bare drive." What is this and how would it affect the build?

Any other comments on the prospective build would be more than welcome! Thanks.
