QUESTION: wow shut up..

Not sure why you told me to shut up.
Really, if you don't know what is compatible you should get something that you know is compatible. I can search every piece of hardware on your list for compatibility but you would not learn what to look for. If you are going to build a computer you should learn.
I can tell you what to look for in each component.
Processor: Socket Size
RAM: Speed (DDR2 DDR3 etc.)maximum amount per slot.
Power supply: According to what your hardware demands
Video: According to what kind of slot the motherboard has and whether or not you want dual or single.
