Noob question - Compatible Parts?

Hi,
This may be a stupid question, but can anyone tell me if these parts are compatible with each other?

MB - ASUS M5A97 R2.0 970 AM3+ R
CPU - AMD 8-CORE FX-8320 3.5G 8M R
MEM - 8G CORSAIR CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B
HDD - 1TB 3.5" SATA6.0GB/S 64M
PSU - CORSAIR 750W CXMOD 80+BRZ ATX

I'm having trouble with random lag
instances and very very slow log on/off times (like 10-15 mins..) I watched the NewEgg 3 part video about how to build a computer and on part 3, as soon as he installed Windows 7, there seemed to be no lag on his end even without drivers installed. If anyone has had a similar problem or knows what to do please let me know ASAP. I may just try to reinstall the Windows 7 OS if all else fails..
