Will This Work Well?

Sorry for asking this question that has no doubt been repeated constantly,
but I'm looking for a computer in which I could play games like, Guild Wars 2 and Final Fantasy 14 on.

I will also be using it for 3D modeling and rendering, the program being 3D Studio Max.

My budget is $2000 for everything.

I attempted to put one together on CyberPower's site here for their Black Pearl - http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/CyberPower_Black_Pearl/
And now I'm left wondering if it'll work out well?

Like many others before me, I haven't done this before and I'm unsure of what half of this stuff does but,
I once remember a friend telling me that if the power supply and the motherboard aren't compatible then the computer will overheat and die.
or something to that extent.

So I need to be sure.
At least I can say I attempted to do this, though truth be told I really just went and clicked on what looked good all willy-nilly.

I thank you all in advance for all your help on this matter.

    Drop the network card,your motherboard has that.
    Drop all the USB 3.0 expansions,there's plenty on the motherboard and case.
