I have a laptop that is starting to show signs of wear, (HHD occasionally won't start up, sometimes loses wireless etc.). However it has an intel i5 processor, which I would quite like to re-use in my PC as it would give me a much better processor than I could normally afford, and would allow me to invest in other parts. Is this possible?
Here is the list of parts I plan to use: http://www.amazon.co...?ie=UTF8&lm_bb=
Are these parts compatible? Would I be limited in upgrades in the future to just intel? Roughly what quality of gaming can I expect from this?
Sorry for all the questions, I'm a bit of a N00b, and want to be sure about the build before sinking £300 into it.
Edit: I forgot an optical drive, this one seems fine:

and I have a USB network adapter so hopefully there's no need for a network card etc.
