Is my Build good so far?

Hey, this is my first time building a computer so I'm not sure if all the parts would work together correctly and would like so advices. Not trying to build a high end gaming computer as you can see since my budget is low, and I'm buying them locally so this is the store I'm going to with the parts. (NCIX).
