First off, I would like to say I am fairly inexperienced when it comes to building computers so I have a few noob questions. I have a Lenovo IdeaCentre K330B with specs as follows:

Intel Core i3-2120 CPU @ 3.30Ghz
8 GB DDR3 Samsung Ram
ATI Radeon HD 4550
290W PSU

I have purchased a few upgrades to make my gaming experience more enjoyable. First off, my #1 question is about the ram I purchased from newegg. I bought a set of G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR today and was curious as to if my build will be able to support 1866Mhz Ram and how I would go about changing my bios to support it?

Keep in mind that I have also purchased a CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply and a Galaxy 65NGH8DL7AXX GeForce GTX 650 GC 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card. Just wondering how this should all work out together, and my main concern is whether or not the ram will be compatible? Thanks :)
