Yes, they are compatible.

I would recommend going with DDR3-1600 RAM, though, and get it as two 4GB sticks instead of a single 8GB one.

Another recommendation would be to go with a PSU with a more solid rep. Look for Corsair, Antec, or Seasonic.

eVGA cards are good, and their G2 series PSUs are good, but their other PSUs are junk. Different OEMs for the two types make all the difference.
