Everything is compatible and will work fine. I would recommend a 60gb+ SSD. Also you could save some money alot of places and afford a 7870 or 660ti.

^I agree. Go with a nice 128GB SSD for $50 more. Those small SSDs are really only if you ONLY want to install an OS on it, even then people still buy other, larger SSDs for actual storage. Also, for a very small sum more, you could get a 7870 which outperforms the 7850 considerably. Here is a comparison:

You get more FPS for only ~$20 more.
