yeah, all your parts will work with eachother just fine.

...this is meant to be a gaming rig, right?

Yep will that be a pretty decent gaming computer I know you can get more expensive parts but I want to be able to play newer games on my computer.

They are all compatible with one another. It is a solid rig, you should be able to max out newer games on smaller resolutions like 1280x1024, but if you kick things up to like 1920x1080 you might have to settle for mid-range settings.

Okay thanks. My only other question is about the operating system. I have a 64 bit version of windows 7 on my laptop is there a way to it to a disk then upload to the new computer once it gets built?

the only thing you can do is to transfer the actual hard drive in. you will need an adapter so that it can be secured inside the case.

The way Windows licensing works you will have to purchase another copy of Windows 7 if you want to install it on your new build from scratch, or do what hiigaran says and physically transfer the hard drive out of your laptop.

Or, if the games you want to play are available on Steam, Valve has been working on porting games to Linux. While it will take some time, Valve have stated that they want their entire catalog to be playable on Linux, and I'd imagine the rest of games available on Steam would follow eventually.

well if you already have a copy of windows, you can install it on the new computer, then when you need to activate it, call up microsoft and give them some bull about having to reinstall the computer after a motherboard failure and replacement.
