Hello guys :hello:  :hello:  . Finally saved up enough money to build my first computer (on Black Friday). All I need now is for a few people to tell me that these parts are all compatible or not. Also, I'm quite terrified of installing the motherboard into the case so any tips are appreciated.
EDIT:I would like to use an AM3+ setup so I may upgrade to a better processor later.

its all compatible but get more graphics power by changing the processer to this

because its integrated graphics will crossfire with your 6670 for better performance.
Heres a Motherboard for the socket on the cpu(FM2).

Wow that looks great but my only problem is that I want an AM3+ so I can upgrade to a better processor later on.
