You ddr3 ram will work with any solution. The GPU will work with any solution. The PSU likely will work with any solution if it's a quality brand if not then look to upgrade.

That`ll cost ya more, go with Alan`s suggestion of the AMD, he won`t steer you wrong

And do you really want a micro atx board ?

The board doesn't look as fancy though xD The other boards say gaming specific. Are you sure I shouldnt go with the Intel one if I can push the budget up?

I`m sure most would tell you to go Intel, if you can afford it.
