:welcome:   kruppyman96,

 

As long as the Ram is 2 Xs 4GB sticks of 1.5V 1600MHz I see no compatibility or assembly issues and the PSU has an adequate output for your listed hardware.

The CPU is better but other than that no real difference. 

 

Avoid using a single 8GB stick of Ram and go for 2 Xs 4GB sticks instead, if one stick fails you can still use the computer with a single 4GB stick something you would not be able to do if a single 8GB stick fails or is DOA.

 

FWIW: Neither list of parts will be a prolific gaming rig, what is the intended use.

 

Polite reminder;
