They are compatible, but I recommend msi video cords, xfx or corsair PSU's, and ivy bridge processors. However, you didn't ask for suggestions, so I won't go into detail.

Should be, yep.
Though with that sort of budget, I highly recommend getting an SSD as a boot drive - it's seriously mind boggling. As Tom's said recently, it's just about the biggest upgrade you could do to a modern computer.

Well this PSU is less money than my original choice, so why not, and with the RAM what would you suggest.

Would this RAM be okay?
