Everything will fit, but inside what??? Lol :D 

Do you have a case picked out? Also make sure to pick up an operating system!

Get the 8320 instead. Much less power consumption and less heat. 8gb RAM two 4gb sticks might run better for gaming

Can i safely overclock the 8320 to close power as the 9370? Why do you say 4GBx2 is better then 8GBx2 Dual for gaming?

I'd say, get the 8320 instead yup. Also for ram I suggest http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... that's 4x4 sticks, which will run better with your motherboards channel. I also doubt you'll ever need more than 16 GB. For a case pick up a Corsair 550D http://www.corsair.com/us/pc-cases/obsidian-series-pc-c...

They are wonderful, and great build quality for the price! Also provide easy installation of water cooling down the road.

Lastly I suggest you pick up an aftermarket CPU cooler such as the Hyper 212 Evo -> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

yes easily, and if gaming is the most intense thing youll be doing 8GB total is the sweet spot, and dual channel is ideal. wen i went from 8 to 16 i acutally lost performance (number of factors),
