FX8120 Build OS Vista thoughts ?

I am preparing a Build to operate vista and maybe VM of Linux Mint

I am not sure of how I should go about this but thus far this is the build
Mother Board MSI 990fx -GD80
CPU FX8120
HD Seagate Barracuda 750GB 7200rpm
GPU HD6870
Cooling Antec 620 Khuler
Psu Cooler master extreme 700w
RAM still up in the air will go purchase in a hour or so
DVD re write drive LG DVD burner
OS Vista Home Basic 32Bit

I do plan to migrate to a Win8 OS just because but what are your thoughts on running Vista with this hardware will there be any issues this is just a pet project I always have room to upgrade also wondering should I go with corsair ram again for the Slight overclock or should I get something else I can only use 4 GB so opinions on deck

It should work well with Vista, but why?

Corsair RAM is a quality brand, I have been using only GSkill for my last 4 builds with very good luck and it seems to over clock well.
