i have being researching all of my components for a while now and are eager to order as soon as possible.
my question is....

ARE ALL THESE PARTS COMPATIBLE WITH WINDOWS 8 64BIT AND ALSO WITH EACH OTHER? i already have a hard drive from an old computer as well as a re-writer.

Intel Core i5-3470 S1155 3.2GHz 6MB
Asus P8H61-M LX R2.0 S1155 Intel H61 DDR3 mATX
Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) Ballistix Sport DDR3 1600MHz CL9 1.5v 240pin
Asus GeForce GTX 650 1058MHz 1GB PCI-Express 3.0 HDMI

my 2nd question, i am going to order the windows 8 pro from microsoft upgrade as i have a windows xp disk. this disk is 32 bit. how do i know what bit i will be upgrading to as i want to 64 bit.

thanks in advance Daniel
