First build: Good enough? or Revise?

Hey, I've spent about 1 month and 2 weeks researching, gathering a list of parts for my first build, and taking suggestions. I'm coming close to buying the actual parts and I want to know if this build is good-to-go or if I should change anything for something better and/or cheaper.

Parts:
CPU: AMD FX-8320
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Video Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 2GB
Motherboard: Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0
RAM: G.Skill Sniper Series 8GB DDR3-1866
Hard Drive: Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB
Power Supply: SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W
Case: NZXT Phantom
Monitor: Asus VS247H-P 23.6" Monitor
Optical: LITE-ON Black SATA DVD-ROM Drive Model iHDS118-04

My decisions are almost finalized and suggestions will be considered but if they're not appealing enough, then they may not be used. Any answers will be appreciated :)

    but I suggest you to change your selected Hard Drive because Seagate Barracuda is Better than WD Caviar Blue.

    good build.


    Thanks for the feedback :)
    Some people recommended me a Seagate, other people recommended me WD. Its been 50/50 for both so I'm not sure which to choose yet. A personal friend of mine that gave me some advice recommended me WD due to his bad experiences with Seagate drives. But I may just use my shitty old 250GB HDD until I am conclusive about which HDD to get to replace this one.
  3. look
    Seagate Drives are slightly faster than WD caviar blue,
    WD Caviar green is Eco-conscious. it stops working while its not in use.
    this cause to a certian lag.
    WD Caviar Black is Far better than all of these but its costly.
    Seagate Barracuda is good :)

    Alright, I'll keep that in mind. But like I said, I'm most likely just going to use my old 250GB HDD for now due to my need for new peripherals ( Don't have the money for both because I'm already barely staying in my budget ).

    Quick question: Is there a possibility that I will run into a problem with my power supply? Such as cables that aren't compatible with a certain part.
