You might want to list the items rather than links in your post. Not thinking too many people are willing to click seven links and make a list just to answer your questions...

Welcome to the cheap side of town A bunch of us run rigs with similar hardware and they work well. I'm running mountain lion on a cheap msi sandy board and it's great. Video cards are always a pain but give it a shot. It does have atheros lan so you may need a kext but it will work.
