  1. Everything is very compatible.

    Motherboard has PCIE 2.0 Slot needed for PSU and also support the CPU well.
    No issues anywhere. I myself have Elite 310 and its awesome in build quality.

    However you might want to change PSU to one of these if available in your country -

    I prefer XFX here.

    I'm sorry, but I can't afford any better PSU's.
    Just a question. Does the GPU I mention comes with dvi to vga adapter?
  3. I guess not. You can buy a cheap one at your local computer parts retailer, etc. They all sell it for around $5 or even lesser.
