Hello forum!

I've been planning to build my own pc but im low im money. I have a job where i earn 150$ a month so in the length i can buy a proper pc meanwhile i gotta upgrade and live with what i got
so my question is would my i5-2300 2,80 GHz fit in the ASUS Z87-K?
And could i put 2gb 1rx8 pc3-10600u-9-10-a0 ram into it?

No, the Z87 is socket LGA 1150 where as the I5-2300 is LGA 1155. It will not work. The ram might work, but I cant be really certain. Anyway 2GBs is too small to even run windows 7 comfortably.
