Hi, welcome to the forum! There are a lot of incompatibility with the list of parts unfortunately. The three components at home will not be used due to it's old interface which has been phased out in modern day motherboards and the ram type itself is not used anymore. The CPU will not fit into the motherboard because of the different socket and i would avoid purchasing refurbished power supply as having a solid power supply is kinda like a backbone to a system.  Is there some sought of budget you have and the uses you have plan for the new system?

The system will now work although not exactly cost effective but we first need to determine your particular uses with this PC?

Geez my new i5 didn't cost that much and I got it thru a PC shop.  Do you need an i7? Look at my sig, That cost me $600 bucks Including a Sky CF-341 Midi Tower Case , Now throw in a decent Video card for about 250 bucks,  And maybe another 8 GB ram at it and you are set.  I do not need 16GB ram on Linux, or a Big video card as I do not game.

Cool get 1. You have to use it and if you want it get it easy.  I did the same thing with my i5.

 

The SSD is a bit  small for Windows OS, 256GB would be better, And you also need storage a 1TB hdd.

why is my ssd small?

 

As a result of its benchmarks, Anandtech recommends that you “plan on using only about 75% of its capacity if you want a good balance between performance consistency and capacity.” In other words, set aside 25% of your drive and don’t write to it. Only use up to 75% of your drive’s free space and you should maintain ideal performance. You’ll see write performance start to slow down as you go above that mark.

 

6 Things You Shouldn’t Do With Solid-State Drives

 

After setting aside 25% of your drive as suggested that leaves you what? Around 90 GB? How big is a Windows install? How much space do you now have left? What software are you going to install? Any games? I have seen lots of Windows 7 installs with added software and a few games run into 65 to 80 GB, this is why I think it's a bit small for Windows OS.

Bigger SSD more ram 16GB. If you start running out of ram Windows will use the SSD to write to. Swap file or what ever windows calls it.

 

Look you are building a great system spend a few extra dollars and get the bigger of both. You wont regret it. Both these upgrades in ram and SSD wont cost more than $150.

 

This is what 40 bucks extra?

★★Brand NEW★★ Sandisk Ultra Plus 256GB SSD Solid State Drive 530MB/s 7mm SATA3

 

And instead of 2 x 4GB sticks of ram get 1 x 8GB stick that way its easy to plug in more ram later. If you have 1x8GB its easy to jump to say 16 GB by just adding a stick of ram.

For a sort of gaming system, i wouldn't be spending on a whole lot on the CPU as games are mostly bound to the graphics card. The card you have chosen a low end hence it won't perform as well in video games unfortunately.

Here are some changes:

CPU: Intel Core i5-4690 - I can assure you this will be more then sufficient for gaming purposes but also it can handle video editing and streaming really well as the Haswell micro-architecture is quite powerful despite it being only an i5.

 

RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws X 8GB 1866mhz - As NickAu mentioned previously in this thread, a single 8GB stick would be a better setup because it will allow easier expansion in the future if you do decide to go for 16GB of ram.

 

Graphics card: Sapphire Tri-X OC R9 290 - The graphics card chosen should be able to play modern titles at 1080p with medium to high settings and it has a awesome cooler to keep it cool and quiet.

 

Power Supply: Seasonic S12G 650W - 650W is more then enough for the system plus it allows for little expansions in the future like adding more hard drives, sound cards etc. Also the power supply is very efficient due to it's gold efficiency rating and high quality components used inside it.

Yes, the graphics card is fully compatible with the motherboard as both uses the PCI-E interface. The ram linked will certainly work on the motherboard and is definitely suitable.
