First time build. Is my computer build compatible?

Answer:

Looks like a great build, however I strongly recommend waiting for AMD Bulldozer.
Get a LGA 1155 motherboard, and get an Intel Core i3 2100. Cheaper and better than the 965. Also, are you going to play high end games like Battlefield 3 or CoD? If so, then you need a discrete graphics card, which you didn't list.
Where's your GFX Card? You want to use it don't you? Also, AMD Bulldozer is coming out in about a month or two, wait to build an AMD build because prices will drop/you could get a much better CPU. For the GFX (since your going AMD) I'd go for 6770, 6870, 6850, 6950, 6970, or 6990. Yes, all of those parts do work together.
One, maybe you should get someone to help you, considering you don't know if it will all fit in the tower. Two, that needs a video card. It won't work without one.
