Is my hardware compatible with Linux? (Zorin OS 18.2 Education Edition x64)

I've looked everywhere I can think of for compatibility lists, but couldn't find my motherboard or video card.

Here's my part list/specs:

Yes, it'll be fine. Everything on there will be supported.

Should be fine. Do you have this PC already?

Yes, I built it about a year ago or year and a half. Now I just need to make a partition for Zorin OS 12.2 x64 which is based on debian ubuntu. I currently have Windows 8.1 Pro x64 Build 9600 and I want to use both OS's, though Windows exclusively for gaming since Linux/Zorin don't have perfect support for games. I thought about doing/using a KVM as well. (KVM = Kernel-based Virtual Machine)

I meant Zorin 12.2 and not 18.2. I was thinking of Linux Mint when I typed the title.
