Will my parts work with this new motherboard?

Hey. Right now i have a Gigabyte GA-8I865GME-775 motherboard, i5 750 CPU and a Radeon 7950 Gigabyte gpu. I'm looking to upgrade to a new cpu, the i5 2400, but it has a different connector (lga1155) to my current motherboard (lga1156). So i looked around and found this motherboard that will support that new cpu: http://www.stanonlinestore.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&currency=GBP&cPath=22&products_id=995
But i want to know whether my current computer parts will all still work (apart from the cpu obviously, because i am buying a new one) with this motherboard. I have ddr3 1336 mhz ram and a 7950 gpu as i stated earlier, but i dont want to have to replace everything. Will it work?
Thanks.

    Motherboard you linked is socket 1151, and i5 2400 is socket 1155 - they will not work together.

  3. Yes, that one will work with i5-2400, and ddr3 1333 ram too (only two slots for ram, max 16 gb). Should be no problem with your gpu too.
