Need help on new parts to an old build

So I am planning on buying a new processor and motherboard and I need a little help determining if everything I plan to get would work together and if I would have any issues regarding power consumption and stuff of that matter.
So here is my new build:

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor FD8350FRHKBOX

MSI A78M-E35 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A78 (Bolton D3) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

ASUS HD7850-DC2-2GD5-V2 Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Thermaltake TR2 TR-600 600W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

12GB DDR3-1600 SDRAM

  1. Best answer
    cpu and mobo aren't compatible, you need an AM3 socket board.
  2. The motherboard will not work the 8350 is an AM3+ socket the mobo you selected is only for fm2+ &FM2. Also why the 12gb of ram do you have 2 fours and 2 two gb sticks?
  3. No that cpu and motherboar are not compatible, different chip sockets, so the cpus are physicallyd ifferent.

    Get an asus m5a97 r2.0 board instead.
  4. cpu and motherboard is not compatible. You need a AM3+ socket motherboard.
  5. 12gb will give you no bennifit in gaming, FYI

    Also, thermaltake is not that great of a power supply, go for seasonic, xfx, corsair (not cx series), or rosewill hive or capstone.

    600w gives you plenty of wiggle room, but 500 would be plenty for a 7850.
  6. Did you buy this old build pre-builded? because if you did, you also need to boy OEM os
