After surviving a year with only a laptop I've decided to build myself a computer. I've done quite a bit with computers, from replacing vid cards, CPU's, PSU's so I have the know-how to put it together, however I've never started from scratch so I just wanted to make sure everything I've chosen is compatible. Here's what I have in mind:

ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 3.3GHz Socket AM3+ 95W Six-Core Desktop Processor FD6100WMGUSBX
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2CCA 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) with Transfer Kit
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thermaltake TR2 RX 750W Bronze W0382RU ATX 12V v2.3 / EPS 12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

To stay within my budget (more my wife's budget), I'll be reusing a ASUS GeForce® GTS450 graphics card. I also have (2) 1TB externals I'll be using for actual storage.

Will this all work together?

All fine, just double check that the motherboard supports the Pin type of the Cpu.
And add some DDR3 memory to the list.

Oops, I was working so many different configs I must have forgotten to put the memory on my final list. This is the memory I had chose

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9Q-16GBXL

Good memory, go for it. Like I said just double check the Cpu pin layout, fits the cpu socket. Best to check.
Make sure the board can handel the speed of the memory also or it may be a waste.

CPU and board are both AM3+

Board supports DDR3 2100(OC) / 1866(OC) / 1800(OC) / 1600(OC) / 1333 / 1066 / 800 up to 32GB

Should be good!
