They'll fit together but the PSU will most likely be a bit much..most likely you'll need under a 1000W, probably in the 750W range. AMD just recently release the 7000 series for the GPU series..are you really willing to wait that long for the 9000 series to come out?

I'm not going to have the money for this computer until 2014.

Not to be rude but, repost this in 2014 when you have the money. there will most likely be whole new generations of products.

Yeah. I'm going to be reposting/updating this list once in 2013 and once when I have the money.
I'm just asking if these parts will work so I could more easily find the right parts.
