Hi, I am wanting to build my first PC and I have got a list of parts together. I think they should all work together but I am a newbie so I would like another opinion. This is my part list:

CPU: AMD FX-8350 3.9Ghz

Motherboard: Asus M5A97 R2.0 Motherboard

RAM: Corsair CML8GX3M

That motherboard and CPU are compatible, but i cannot seem to find that RAM. As long as the RAM is DDR3 and below 2133MHz you'll be fine.

Your motherboard supports your CPU from a pretty early BIOS revision, so you should be good there.

We could use a little more information on your RAM. There should be a little more to the model number. If not, could you post the complete RAM specs (speed/timings/voltage)? I don't see the model listed in the RAM compatibility lists, but that doesn't mean it won't work.
