I just have a few questions and I would greatly appreciate it if anyone answers!

1. Is everything compatable? if I put it together would it work?

2. Is it reasonable? my price range is around 600-700 dollars willing to go maybe a little over(which I did) Should I have a less expensive graphics card with that processor ? or anything

3. I've been doing a lot of reasearch on graphics cards and the Radeon HD 7850 seems to be pretty good for a reasonable price. What brand of it should I get? is the HIS an okay brand? does brand even matter when its the same card?

4. I think I may be using my 30 inch TV as my monitor. If I do get the Radeon HD 7850 card; should I get the 1GB or 2Gb? there is around a 30 dollar difference and the reviews on the 2gb seem to be a little better.

5. any tips or feedback?

what does that mean a supported CPU? should I chose a different board?

In my opinion, yes. Supposing the board doesn't come with the required BIOS, then you'll not be able to get to BIOS (the PC would not POST). You would have to install an older CPU, supported by the board, get to BIOS and flash it.
Then the RAMs height might not fit the CPU cooler. The CPU socket is close to the RAM slots.

When buying the board you can't know what version is the BIOS programmed. It's buy and see. Would you like to buy such board or get one that you know for sure it will support the CPU?

I'd much rather get one where its guaranteed to work with the CPU. So how do I find a board that I know will work with it?
By the way I do appreciate the feedback

I prefer Intel too. Do you still want an AMD board for the Vishera CPU?

It's just that intel seems a lot more expensive but if I can fit a better intel CPU and motherboard into my build for 800 dollars I might
