Compatible, and a nice build all around, you could get a dvd burner at about the same price but that's only if you plan to burn discs.There is no better cpu in the price range, it's the best choice for a pure gaming machine.

All is compatible. I would also suggest going with a DVDRW and you can save a few dollars also. I do a LOT of movie burning and I have had excellent service from both of the below.

Newegg.com - LG 22X Super-Multi DVD Burner 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 22X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model GH22NS90B - CD / DVD Burners

Newegg.com - ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS - CD / DVD Burners
