Will these parts work together in my budget gaming PC?

Hello, I am fairly new when it comes to PC hardware, but was thinking about putting together my own cheap PC for gaming rather soon. I found parts that I think are satisfactory, but I wanted to make sure that there wouldn't be any issues (extreme bottlenecking, incompatible parts, insufficient energy supply etc.) before I purchased them.

If I could get confirmation that this build is OK, or if anybody can spot any problems that I missed I would very much appreciate it!

All the parts are compatible Do you have ram and do you have a case. Although the parts are a bit dated and maybe a bit weak what sorts of performance were you looking for and what resolution will you be gaming at?

Thanks for the response. Yes, I do have both a case and RAM.

I am mainly planning to run recent games such as Skyrim on medium settings with a decent FPS. I'm not one to care for extremely good graphics as long as they look decent enough and I can run it smoothly.

If you want a cheap computer go the path of amd you get more bang for your buck intel is expensive but only really shines when it comes to high end hardware. The low end stuff is just overpriced.

MOBO: $69

Something like this is great and when you get more money you can upgrade the gpu to something really good. The 8320 is a bit more expensive than your old processor but will smoke it.
