Hello i am planning on upgrading my pc and want to double check with others did I pick everything correctly.

ASROCK H110M-DGS LGA1151 2xDDR4 Max RAM 32GB DVI 2xUSB3 +
KINGSTON 8GB 2133MHz Savage 2x4 DDR4
Intel core i3-6100
Gonna use my current card Nvidia GT 730 (yes i know it is weak but i dont have more money atm)

So will it all be compatible, will the ram and CPU fit into MOB?

Motherboard Specs

 

As long as components meet stated specs...there should not be compatibility issues, IMO.

I'm confident about the Cpu since it supports intel 6th gen which is intel core i3-6100 but about the ram i have doubts, yes it is 2133 mhz and non-ecc and unbuffered but i heard you have to check how many pins it has and i don't know where to find how many pins this MOB supports

DDR4 unbuffered non-ecc is 288 pins. And motherboard supports that memory.

What's your old system? I cannot recommend i3-6100 as it's very expensive for being only dual core CPU.

my old CPU was:
Intel Pentium E5500  dual core 2.8ghz
2GB DDR2 ram

i know it has 2 cores, but since i am not multitasking it will be enough, and in tests this dual core processor beats AMD Octa core

In low core use tests yes. On multitasking it gets beaten very badly by AMD octa core.

Since two cores is enough, I suggest getting cheaper dual core like Pentium G4400.
