Building my first PC, how does everything check out?

So im about to build my first PC (i've owned many computers before, but this is the first time I am building one)

Now I have been researching this for days non-stop pretty much, and I have gotten down every part I need, for the right price and right amount of power/performance. I already have a chassis/case and 500 GB HDD, and all I need is RAM, PSU, CPU, GPU, Motherboard, and Disk Drive. I have got all the parts ready to order in...
CPU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116782

GPU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127666

RAM: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820161468

Disk Drive: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827136259

Motherboard: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128584

PSU: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002G1YPHK/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

PC Specs:
Intel Core i5-3350P 3.1GHz
Radeon HD 6670
8 GB DDR3

The only issue I have is... will my PSU work with all my components? is it powerful enough? does it have enough connectors and the right kinds?
I have an extremely tight budget and time limit (I want to get the parts and build the PC before School starts again) so there is no room for errors.

Just wanted to check it through with the experts here :)
any other thoughts on this build are welcome.

  1. I don't feel like I would pick any of the components you chose except maybe for the CPU... what is your budget ? I'll propose you something else.

    $500

    thats including shipping and tax
  3. Another question, what do you want to do with it ? If it's for gaming we can cut a bit on the CPU to get a better GPU, if you won't game with it at all, we might just totally forget about the GPU and put that money somewhere else.

    If you add up the taxes and the shipping, it will get to the limits of your budget. It will be much, much better than the build that you wanted to go with, especially on games like Skyrim.
