So im new at building a customizing a computer. Im trying to build my dad a computer for christmas. But i dont know if the parts im trying to get is compatible with each other. Hes an electrical engineer who uses some ancient computer that runs Windows 2000 lol. I dont know how he deals with it...he does autocad and that stuff.

Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 Quad-Core Desktop Processor

CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 430W Power Supply

ASRock H77M Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory

ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS

Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

These are the stuff that im trying to get. Without the case and windows 7. Is it compatible with each other?

Taking a quick look at the motherboard through the link, this is a socket 775 board, has a maximum memory of 8GB DDR2 RAM so would not be a sutiable motherboard. Searching for the ASRock H77M Micro ATX then this is a socket 1155 board and supports DDR3 through 2 memory sockets so your memory should be fine. PSU is probably sufficient unless you are planning on adding a graphics card.
