    Everything seems to be correct for the build except for the GPU. It's a PCI Express 2.0 x16, and your Motherboard supports PCI Express 3.0 x16, so maybe find a GPU that has Express 3.0.

    Other then that, I don't see you running into any problems with gaming, and just doing regular tasks!

    Compatible, yes. Do check on the 3.0 pci-e vid cards, to see what you can find. That GPU is fine though.
