Hello,
This is my first time on this forum and my first time building a PC on my own as well , I have already managed to find Pieces that will fit both my budget and my gaming requirments But i just wanted to know if everything would work together and also your opinion about the build. The build should be as following :

ATI 6850
AMD FX-6100
ASRock 970 Extreme3
XFX Pro 650W
4GB Of DDR3 RAM ( 2x2GB )

So , Will this components work together? Like will the motherboard be able to run that Processor and Vid Card with no problems? Will the Power Supply be able to run the PC with no problems/Max Load?

Thanks in Advance :D

It seems fine, but that PSU is really overkill for your system, unless you plan on CF in the future.

Also, those parts alone will not make a working PC, not sure if you don't know that or you just want to know about the parts you posted.

Thanks for the reply mate , And Yea i know its not gonna make it work but i already have a 500GB HDD and a DVD-Rom that i can live with till i saved some more money to upgrade.

As for the PSU , Would that hurt the PC? Also what else would recommend if not this one? Its just that i live in Egypt and finding hardware is not as easy :D 

EDIT :

If you consider the 650W as an overkill .. Should i get the XFX PRO 550W Then? Its same quality (Except less wattage OFC ) and got good reviews.

Thanks in advance :D

Also , If i get a 6870 Rather than a 6850 ... Would the XFX Pro 550W be enough?

I'm not sure about the quality of XFX Psu's, but 550w should be fine for a single 6870 if the Psu quality isn't terrible.

XFX is top quality in PSUs since their OEM is Seasonic.

Ahh, ok. Never used an XFX PSU before, I always stuck to Corsair.

Hitman, the 6870 is the better choice imo, as it's only $20 more expensive @ Newegg, but it will help quite a bit in terms of FPS, about a 10-20% increase in framerate in most games. Just as an example, the 6870 does 11 FPS better in BF3 @ 1920x1080 according to this article:

Anyway, personally I think the 6870 is worth the extra money; but again, it's your choice on what you want.

Corsair is OK, but most of their mid and low range PSUs are low quality.

The Builder series is pretty bad, but the TX's and HX's were fairly high-quality for their price.

Yep, that's their high-end PSUs.
