Will this PSU work with my first computer?

Hello, I'm building my first computer and am wondering if the power supply I have chosen will work with my other parts. I've read that some power supplies don't work with certain computer parts, but I don't know what I need to have a look at. My power supply is a Corsair TX650, and the rest of my parts are:


If no-one can be bothered to look at them all, could someone tell me how I can see if they work with the power supply?
Also, if I need to buy a new PSU, my budget is $550-$630 (All the parts at the moment add up to ~$584).

    The TX650 will be more than enough to power any good build. Here is a much better build (better graphics card, CPU, HDD, CPU cooler).
    Edit (Will be working on better build, just noticed you are an aussie :P)
  2. that psu is more then enough and 100% compatible.
  3. Nice choice on the PSU it will power your specs easily.

    Wow, thanks! That looks a lot better than my other one. You left the psu and drive out, but I could add them easily with the site you used.
