Hello, I wanna start off with a simple beginning. I've been playing on a PC since I was about 2. Now I'm 15 and have my own PC and have decided to upgrade it... well most of it. I have a Corsair... something water cooling system, a 1200W power supply, and now a new keyboard and mouse. Now I'm wanting to upgrade my PC. I basically need to upgrade everything except for the case and aforementioned cooling system and power supply. I've thrown a list together of what I want but I have no idea if they'll fir together. I don't wanna make the plunge to get them and find out they don't fit, so can someone help? The part list is as follows Motherboard: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813119140 or an ASUS ROG STRIX B450-F Graphics Card: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500454 or ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 RAM: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233852 or CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB CPU: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113497 or AMD RYZEN 5 2600X

My main questions are: Will these parts fit together? Are they good to be used for the next few years if need be? I have used PC's for most of my life but know next to nothing about how they work or any part lists. I wanna use this as a learning experience, and any piece of advice helps. Thank you so much to anyone who does decide to help me, it is appreciated more than you know!

That’s what this site is for lol. You enter your parts in the list it tells you if it works. Every dimension you need is on here, just search for the part and you’ll find it.

The parts fit together, but what case does your computer have?
