Hello, I was wondering if this build for my budget of $1300 to $1400 is a good build? This build is an complete package build meaning CPU and accessories included in the price. All parts are from Newegg. Reason for this, is that I desire to purchase from one source.

Goal is for gaming and possible web and etc.

For the specs of my build, what would I expect from it at 1080p?
Are all the parts compatible to each other?
Is the PSU enough to handle the build? This one is tricky for me due to choosing the right PSU can be interesting none the less. Well here are my specs below, any suggestions and thoughts are welcomed. If I'm missing anything please let me know. :)

Ok, thank you for the response and link. I did look at the link, however the PSU is a bit out of my budget. Since you did say that the Cosair CX600 will work I will go with that due to it falls within my budget. Thanks again for the help. :)

If your looking to get good airflow and cable management get the modular version of the cx 600 ;)

My rig:
Motherboard- M5A97 LE R2.0
CPU- fx-8320
GPU- gtx 770 4gb with acx cooling
RAM- 8gb of Vengence RAM
PSU- CX600 by Corsair
Case- NZXT Switch 810
HDD- .5 tb (I think by Sandisk)

I actually just got the 8320. The cx600 is so far a great psu and handling the load well. I would recommend it!
