Hello, I've had the idea to do a PC-build for a long time, so I looked up all the components and till so far I think they are all compatible. But still, this is my first build so I can't be sure about it, I hope that someone can tell me for sure.
These are the components and their vendor codes and the urls from where I found them:

I'm never compatible with nVidia, absolute trash and waste of money. :-p
I'd go with 1600mhz ram, upgrading to faster ram later will mean you trash the 1333mhz. As long as you match stock voltage between ram and MB, you should be OK, for that board 1.5V is the requirement.
I would go the way of FX-8150 or FX-8350, but depends how much they charge you in EU.
