Hi, this is the first time I am building my own pc so I need some advice.
I'm consider the following spec
and would like to know if there is any thing that I need to add,
like is the power supply enough?
Do I need to add more fan/cooling system?
Are the cpu, gpu, memory and hard drive compatible with the motherboard?
Would it be noisy or generate lots of heat?

Thanks in advance!

I will just say I have used that psu in 3 builds now and has had no problems. As for you build being compatible I will say it will work fine. I have built over 50 computers in my time and have yet to have a component not work with the rest of the system. The link below is for another psu that I have used in a few builds. If you were wanting to stick with a 700watt.
