All parts as far as I can tell are compatable.

As far as power supply I would get: Thermaltake TR2 W0070 ATX 430W Power Supply

You can get it at:

Hope this helps.

: Hi. If you can download the mobo manual, that will tell you more than anything. I would go to the mfr's site and look to see if it's there. Most sites have downloadable pdf's...a big help to someone in your situation. Good night and good luck.
