They should work fine! Really nice case! If this is an office computer should be no problem.

Seems good to me apart from one thing...your hard drive is only 250gb for just a little extra you could get a 1tb...I just built a system with a SSD 60gb for my OS and a HDD 1tb for my games :)  but nowdays you need something that's 500gb plus really.

Happy building :)

sure they should all work together. however I'd watch out for postage costs as they can definitely add up when you buy from multiple companies and have a low budget.

one thing that would be nice to consider is having a different CPU and motherboard, as the Athlon is quite an old CPU now but companies still have to sell it at a larger price due to making a profit. the newer Intel Celerons are noticeably better and are at the same price. I've included a couple of links to a suitable motherboard and CPU for you to consider:

oh, and one more thing.... remember you will have buy Windows separately if you are thinking of using Windows!
