  1. yes it will definately :)
  2. Hes asking about 550w not 650w. But i checked it in pcpartpicker.com i have chosen all your said parts and finally it wrote that it will use about 308w without monitor,mouse,keyboard
  3. Yes, but I would not at all recommend that PSU. I re-created your build with some tweaks that I would also suggest. Let me know if you aren't sure about something or if something is out of your price range. List of reasoning underneath the build link.

    - The Gigabyte motherboard is a fair bit better than that particular Asus, at the same price. If you can spare a little more cash, this is much better than both: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-m5a97ler20
    - Be careful with Kingston RAM as most of the memory they produce is 1.65v, you want 1.5v for that motherboard to be safe.
    - 1TB HDD is only $5~ more than the 500GB with the FX-6300 combo
    - I think it's the same GPU?
    - A much better 550W PSU from XFX. Built by Seasonic, one of the best PSU manufacturers. You don't necessarily need 550W, for $20 you can get this without any issues: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-power-supply-cx430

    Yes. But do yourself a favour and get the XFX instead. Unless you're getting the Raider for free lol.

    btw, XFX is not available in my country. We have seasonic but expensive. I have limited budget so I go for FSP.

    I guess that's fair enough. What about Corsair CX500?
