You are buying this from a systems builder, right? You generally don't need to worry about components not working with each other if you are buying it from a vendor, they won't let you pick components that don't work together.

In any case, the parts that are actually named work fine together.

What resolution are you going to be using? If you are going to be at 1920x1080 or above consider moving up to a 4890 or a GTX275
