Buget Gaming PC Build

Are all these parts for a budget PC build compatible? I am fairly certain they are, but I figured I should ask just in case. If not, could you please recommend something else, or, if I have a bad build, feel free to recommend other parts.
Thanks!

  3. Okay, I thought that was too much power. Thanks guys! I never actually knew about PCPartPicker. I think I might go with something similar to your build.
