    Picked as best answer

    This motherboard has a PCI Express 16x slot, so it will support your video card.

    The RAM you selected is listed on the qualified vendor’s list for RAM. So the RAM should be fine.

    The FX-4100 CPU is supported as of BIOS version 0505

    Everything else you’ve listed is pretty straight forward compatible. You might want a hard drive that supports SATA 6.0Gb/s since your motherboard has that listed.
