All compatible, looks good.
Your links are dead BTW.

Uhh I'm assuming you are referring to these deals here. In which case you should take some extra money and put it towards the 965. The 8xx are rebranded Athlon II X4's to sound legit for the OEM makers. In reality they fail in comparison to the actual Phenoms.

810 vs 965 (in essence the perf. difference)

Better PSU - 60$ after promo, 40$ AR. Plus it's modular and 80+

Then the 5670 is inadequate, probably something like a 460 768mb or a 6850 would work better.
