Is everything OK?
As you are going for a single GPU setup, why not choose the newer Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3.
While it's slot lay-out is...well, a tad remarkable, it's a very decent quality board with USB3.0 and SATA3.0. (Same quality as the one on your list)

Also, throw in an air cooler like the Scythe Mugen2 or a Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus and you'll be able to OC the 955BE towards 3.8-4.0GHz.

When choosing a 955BE, make sure to get a revision C model with SKU HDZ955FBGMBOX.
The revision C runs on 0.850V-1.4V, compared to the older rev. B with 0.875V-1.5V.
The older rev B has SKU HDZ955FBGIBOX

Cheers.
