You bought laptop RAM instead of desktop RAM, so it wont fit or work. Also that PSU you picked out is garbage. The PSU is the most essential part of your system, you dont want to get the cheapest thing you can find.

I didn't buy any of the things yet, I changed the RAM to Corsair Vengeance 8GB for desktop. Does anybody have a suggestion for a PSU I need under $40 please(at least 400 watts).

The antec vp-450 will do fine for a 7770, 7850, 660 gtx no problem, and its cheaper and has great quality build.

If you do the steps correctly when mounting every component, yes.
