Are these components compatible?

I am thinking about ordering some components and wondering if they're all compatible with each other. I had the mistake of ordering a CPU which is not supported by my motherboard. I am asking the tom's hardware community for help because I do not want to make the same mistake and spend money when my computer is not compatible.

RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B
MOTHERBOARD: ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
GRAPHICS CARD: EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2662-KR GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor
power supply: 650 w

Can my powersupply and everything handle each other and be compatible? I am using this setup for PC gaming and am not planning to overclock

  1. Yeah everything is fine in terms of compatibility.
    You haven't listed a PSU specifically, but that setup can run fine on a good 450W PSU.
    If you haven't already bought the PSU, make sure it's decent, and drop to a lower wattage unless you plan on leaving scope for SLI.

  3. Its' compatible yes. Ideal? Not really. The 965 is several years old now and doesn't hold up as well as it used to. The FX-6300 would be a much better choice. What is your max budget?
