Will this budget computer be able to run most games on at least low settings?

Hi

I've been looking around the internet to build a budget PC, and after searching around I've come up with this, which comes to a total of £338.18
I'm not good with computers by any means, so if I've done something stupid with this set up, please let me know because I won't have a clue :P

Processor: AMD FX 6300 Black Edition - £83.56

Will all of these components work together or is something not compatible? Will it be able to run most games even if it were at 800x600 resolution and lowest settings? And if there are any changes that you would make, I'd appreciate feedback. Thanks for reading!

  1. it will run between medium and high settings at 720 - 1080p. Although i would go for a better PSU, you dont want to spen £400 on a system for it to self destruct

    Its a great PSU, if you find something cheaper make sure its 80 + bronze certified or higher. Means its a stable PSU

    I know, the components that the manufacturer uses makes it a stable PSU. The 80 Plus certification shows how energy efficient it is. Now if you correct me, I will correct you
