Need Approval For a build

I'm building my first PC for just gaming and i'm not sure if the parts i have here will work fine together. i already have the other components that i need. Can you shed a little insight on my build?

    my budget is five hundred for the parts i selected. no cd drive. no hard drive.
  3. With 500$ budget this is the best complete list of parts I could come up with:

    CPU seems kinda overkill as almost nothing is gonna take advantage of an 8-core processor. The Phenom 975 X4 is gonna give him the same performance in gaming/almost every application to date.

    Also confused as to why a 600W PSU? Thats gonna be overkill for this build.
