Default Would This Setup Work?

Im upgrading my computer and was wondering if this would work well.

Seagate - Barracuda 1TB Internal Serial ATA Hard Drive

Intel® - Core™ i5-2300 Quad-Core 2.8GHz Processor

Intel® - Media Series ATX Motherboard 1066/1333MHz (Socket 1155)

Corsair - Vengeance 2-Pack 4GB DDR3 DIMM Desktop Memory Kit

PNY - GeForce GTX 560Ti 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express Overclocked Graphics Card

OCZ StealthXStream 600-Watt Power Supply


This is a pretty massive upgrade and costly one too so i want to make sure everything will work together without any problems.

Thanks

It depends on if your motherboard allows for overclocking the RAM. Look in the BIOS. RAM will still run at the lower speed if overclocking is not an option.

Don't worry about the RAM being rated for 1600MHz, it will still run fine at the speed supported by the motherboard.
