Will this gaming PC build run fine?
I'm looking in to building my own PC but first I need to know if all of these components are compatible. This is the link: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Jackbres11/saved/4zzL

Ok I will look into it. On another note, will this case be able to fit all of these parts? That is my worst fear buillding a PC. Don't wanna start buying anything until I know it's perfect.

From personal experience, I would upgrade your motherboard. Look for the m5a99fx pro or evo boards, should only be $30 more, but are a significant upgrade, offer more cpu power, better vrm cooling.
