The 8150 is kind of crap. Get an 8320 for sure.

Okay will do! So to be clear all these parts are compatible right?

Yes sir! Make sure to get low profile RAM in case you ever want to put an aftermarket CPU cooler in there.

Yep, All the parts are compatible.

I have another question it says on new egg the memory standard: DDR3 2100(OC) / 1866(OC) / 1800(OC) / 1600(OC) / 1333 / 1066 / 800

What does OC mean?

Those will work fine. Just get 1600mhz though. No reason to spend extra money for no gain.

Everything looks good except your ssd. Get a Samsung 840 pro or a Crucial m4.
