Pc build check (first time-gaming computer)

I was wondering if anyone could look over this build and tell if there are things i should be aware of (incompatibilities, not enough memory for lots of games, bad CPU/graphics card)

    Way too little RAM will update this with a better build. With 2 gigs that pc can barely even turn on, let alone run a game from the 80's
