Yeah, they're compatible. The only thing I would change is the HDD. The Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB is quieter, cheaper, and has the same performance.

Also, 16GB of RAM is a lot. You may have reasons for it, but it is more than is necessary for most applications.

The PSU is not great. Here's the product brief:

In a 750W psu, 650W on the +12V rail is not very good. Maybe spend a little more on a better name like Corsair or Antec and think about the wattage. If you aren't planning on crossfiring in the future, 750W is a little much and if you are planning on crossfiring in the future, 750W is not quite enough.
