Was wondering if everything would be compatible with each other. And if I'm missing anything, etc.

I already have a sound and wifi card so no need to buy those.

Thanks in advance for any helpful advice.

Get a modern GPU. Something like a 7770. That card is OLD.

Drop the PSU to a 500w unit.

Everything else should be fine.

The corsair cx500 or xfx550 are good choices for this build.

Updated the build, decided to stick with the video card since my budget is around $800.

It is an old GPU.

You really want something like a gtx 650ti or an hd7770 or hd7790.

Ehh I don't want to go over my budget and I don't do too much heavy weight gaming anyways. Thanks though.

Everything else looks good I suppose?

Yeah its fine. That GPU will just use alot of power for what it is since its an older card. What is your budget for a GPU? I will recommend you something new that will perform the same or better for the same price or less.

Here is a 7770. It will use considerably less power. Perform the same. Make less noise and heat. Its a much better option.

Drop that CPU cooler because you cannot overclock that CPU.

After that it looks good to go. Remember that with that 64gb SSD you will really only be able to put the OS on it and maybe 1-2 programs.
