Yes, Those parts will work together but the website you are getting them from is one I have never heard of. The NZXT M59 is a great case and it is roomy enough for those parts, although it is aimed at the budget builder. Judging by your build I would suggest going for a more expensive, more feature packed case with better airflow. Don't get me wrong, that case is awesome, but I would go for the HAF 922/HAF 932 instead.
