shouldnt be any issues that I see with those, just make sure you get the right processor and ram for it, it uses AM3 CPUs only (any AM2+ or AM2 CPU will physically fit but will not work since they do not have a DDR3 memory controller) and it uses DDR3. Also note that there is no integrated video, and that it is a crossfire board, so if your planning on going with a single video card solution, I would recomend going with a crossfire enabled ATI card to allow for future upgradeability. A single NVIDIA card will work on the board, but if you ever decide that one video card isnt enough, you will have to replace it with an ATI card.



Primary system: Motherboard: ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3, Processor: AMD Phenom II x4 945, Memory: 16 gigs of Patriot G2 DDR3 1600, Video: AMD Sapphire Nitro R9 380, Storage: 1 WD 500 gig HD, 1 Hitachi 500 gig HD, and Power supply: Coolermaster 750 watt, OS: Windows 10 64 bit. 

Media Center: Motherboard: Gigabyte mp61p-S3, Processor: AMD Athlon 64 x2 6000+, Memory: 6 gigs Patriot DDR2 800, Video: Gigabyte GeForce GT730, Storage: 500 gig Hitachi, PSU: Seasonic M1211 620W full modular, OS: Windows 10.

I'm surprised you are worried about the compatibility of the HDD and OD, of all things? :thumbsup:
