Hello everyone, first of all sorry for my poor english. So, i have an old computer, an Asus V6-P7H55E and i would like to upgrade it a little. I have a fully compatible build (I think), but my budget is a little limited, so i try to buy it one by one.

I want:
Memory: Corsair XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P85-D3
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 760 2GB WINDFORCE Video Card
CPU: Intel® CoreTM i7-4790, 3.6GHz, Haswell, 8MB, Socket 1150
Power Supply: Thermaltake Smart 730W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply

And other things that i know for sure they are ok, like Storage, Optical Drive, case...

But for now i only have:
CPU: Intel® Core™ i3-530 Processor (4M Cache, 2.93 GHz)
Motherboard: Asus V-P7H55E (I think, can't find many informations about it)
Memory: Kingston 2GB (1 x 2GB) DDR3-1333 Memory (I think, anyway, it's Kingston, 2 GB DDR3-1333) (can't find a better link)
Video Card: AMD Radeon HD 5450 1 GB DDR3 Graphics Card (can't find a better link)
Power Supply: AcBel PC9045-ZA1G Power Supply 300 W (can't find a link)

The ideea is that I already have the Memory and the Video Card, and i want to know if it's ok to install them now, and everything will work fine, or should I wait untill I buy the other things, and if you can tell me if the new build is compatible.Thanks a lot.

EDIT: What could happen if something is not compatible, it won't run or it could get killed?

if you are going to do gaming only and not video editing or so there is no need for I7 CPU check out i5 or AMD FX series everything else seems ok im not sure about the MOBO but someone who knows more will answer surely

Thanks, I will think more about the CPU, still waiting for Motherboard suggestions and if I can install the Memory and the Video Card now without damaging them or other parts of the computer, or should I still wait for the other components

Gigabyte's website has the i7 4790 on that mobo's supported list but I would probably grab a H97 mobo personally.

I am not a huge fan of thermaltake's power supplies, would have to check if that particular one is good or not. That said, I would probably get this power supply insted:

Power Supply: EVGA 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($94.99 @ NCIX US)
Make sure to find the G2 model, the Supernova G1/Nex are not as good as the G2 model.

You could drop the i7 to an i5 4460/4590/4690 and upgrade the GPU to an gtx 770 or r9 280x if you aren't doing video editing or have programs that utilize more than 4 cores.

Everything looks compatible. You could install the RAM + GPU + PSU into the old mobo for the time being without any issues.
