Would this GPU and CPU work with my motherboard?

Hey guys!

I'm upgrading my GPU from a Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 1GB to a Sapphire Radeon HD R9 270 2GB. http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202062

I'm also upgrading my CPU from an Intel Core i3-2120 LGA 1155 to an Intel Core i5-3570 LGA 1155 http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115233

This is my motherboard : Gigabyte H77 LGA 1155. http://www.gigabyte.fr/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4146#ov .
I'm not sure about the compatibility with my mobo. Are those GPU/CPU gonna work well with such an H77?

Thank you for your time!

    Yes they are both compatible and will work just fine:D
    Just make sure you have a good 450 watt power supply or more for the graphics card.

    Thanks! I've had my Thermaltake TR2 600W for two years now, it gives enough power for everything.

    You are among a luck few then as usually the TR 2's are garbage and have stability issues.

    I do have stability issues I guess. Because sometimes, when I boot up my PC, it runs for a few seconds and then shuts itself down. But when I boot it again, it runs fine. I thought it might be my mobo or the plugs but it might be my PSU. The case of my psu is crooked too, it was like this when I bought it. I might change it someday.
  5. Well you know where to come for recommendations on a new power supply unit:D
