The compatibility notes are:

Some AMD A78 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Kaveri CPUs.

The Fractal Design Core 1000 USB 3.0 MicroATX Mid Tower Case supports video cards up to 350mm long, but video cards over 210mm may block drive bays. Since the PowerColor Radeon R9 280 3GB TurboDuo Video Card is 266mm long, some drive bays may not be usable.

Thank you! Please reply!

Can this play games like TF2, Skyrim, and DAYZ? Also do I need a SSD or optical drive?

TF2 can run on really low-end systems still, to my knowledge. Should be good there

Skyrim may take a tad bit more, not too sure

I think DAYZ is still in the "unoptimized PoS" area, wouldn't expect much if that's still the case

this HDD is maybe ~$1 cheaper, if you care

I wouldn't try to stick an SSD in on a budget, IMO

Optical drive - depends on if you're going to be using CDs/DVDs a lot.

should be able to handle GPU-intensive stuff just fine, though
