First PC Build-Need General Help+Tips.

I have recently been looking at building a custom PC for gaming (preferably ARMA 2 + Dayz). As this is my first PC build ever and i have little to zero experience, i would love some help and advice.
i have chosen these parts all off amazon.com and just wondering if they are all compatible and i am not missing any vital components.
Power supply Sufficient??
My budget is around $600 so this current build seems good so far...

I will post links and prices of parts chosen below and advice is welcomed!

Thank you!!
