Yeah they should all fit in the case and work fine. But i recommened getting an i7 Quad-core processor than an i5 if your going to get 16GB Ram. And maybe a 1.5GB or 2GB Graphics card.

    Why get a z77 board when both your processor and graphics card are previous generation?

    Get a z68 board like this.

    Yes you can use your old optical drive as long as it is SATA, and not PATA header on the connector.

    and yes, you should be able to use your old monitors.

    Yes, they will work together. But that 16GB RAM is overkill for the setup. Get 8GB (2 x 4GB) RAM then get a better graphics card, like 560 Ti or 570, that’ll be a lot better for about the same price. And with that Z77, you can upgrade your processor in the future.
