Re: New to upgrading computers, could use some help...
yep, that all looks in order.
CPU falls within the motherboard's maximum wattage and voltage specs, and is socket AM3 like the mobo. GPU is just PCI-e x 16 compatible, which is on all modern mobos really.
RAM is DDR3, and therefore compatible with the mobo.
