Will this build work?

I want to make sure all these parts are compatible with each other especially the PSU which I'm not sure about the quality of. Will this setup work or does anyone have any suggestions of what I should get instead within the same price range? I will be using it mostly for games such as Starcraft 2.

  1. It looks fine and will mostly work for your gaming purposes.

    I would change the HDD to this one being only $5 more with shipping calculated in (or $2 cheaper plus shipping). This one is a lot faster and you get some more capacity as well.

    Should get this GPU for a better warranty but the one you have is fine as well and same price.
