May be some solid work but I expect it to be able to work.

Only part in question id the motherboard all other parts should work.

Edit: Your graphics card will not work in ML but will work in Lion I believe.

Hi thank you for your help... I can change the motherboard to a gigabyte z77x- d3h
Also I'm $50 under budget so I think I might bump my CPU up to the intel i7 3770k...is this still ok...and will there be new driver brought out to allow my graphics card to work in the future or will it never work on ml

ALL intel i-core CPU's are supported and as for the motherboard like the other one with a few minor tweaks it should work, there are other destinations for DSDT's other than here, you may be a able to find one here.
