You should view your computer as part of your job - Think about a Taxi Cab driver who doesn't know the difference between an engine and a transmission - that's like a trader not knowing the difference between a HDD and RAM.
You should at least understand the basics of a computer before you put your entire life savings in it's hands.
OP, You will end up spending $300-$500 more on a case, power supply, RAM, SSD/HDD, Video Card, PSU & CD/DVD drives as well as other BS items like $20 for a tube of thermal compound.
I'd suggest that you sell that mobo + CPU combo for about $350-$375 on eBay and pick up a Dell or HP desktop or workstation. I'm not trying to steer you away from building a computer - but I do think that if you build/DIY it'll end up costing you a bunch more than if you just went out and bought something comparable.
