Everything is compatible but I would go a little higher on the GPU if it is for gaming.

I bumped it up a little to a Gtx 560 ti GPU, but not worried since it's not specifically for gaming. Got the parts in today, fingers crossed.

The GTX560Ti is a very capable card and will work just as well if not better for other tasks.
