It will work together to answer your question, but what is your budget? Do you need a case? Do you need an OS? What is the computer used for..the parts are suggesting gaming. You could do a lot better on the PSU..Seasonic, Antec, XFX, Corsair are good names for the PSU. Try filling this out and we can help you more...

It would all work togetherjust fine but you are missing couple of inmportant parts such as storage, optical drive and a case. I startes putting to gether a build based on what you provided on PCpartpicker.com. Personally I prefer Corsair or Seasonic PSU's myself but OCZ is generally ok, too. I would suggest you do some research on that PSU to be sure though. Here you go.

With that build, it would kick butt on those games. About the only thing you could improve would be to upgrade the graphics to a GTX 680, Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition or SLI a pair of GTX 670's. None of those upgrades would provide a substantial difference in a single monitor setup, however.

Check out these benchmarks for Confirmation:
GTX 670 vs. GTX 680
GTX 670 vs. Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition

It will play Skyrim on ultra for sure..Im not sure about BF3 or Arma2 on Ultra..I dont play those games. I have a very similar system and it maxes out Skyrim. There are a bunch of Youtube videos out there for the other games with the gtx670 you can check out tho.

If you can afford it..YES! if you are putting this much money into a system, I would suggest a SSD for your OS and a few games.. like a Samsung 120 GIG 840. It would be a nice add on for speed..not really help in games, but load times would be really fast.

+1 larrym on the suggestion for an SSD. That would be the icing on the cake for this build. Personnally, I would go for a the fastest Graphics card on the planet as well if I could afford it (see my sig., I already got the fastest single GPU card). However with your budget spending an extra $100 for a marginal improvement would probably not be the best idea. Add in a good ~250GB SSD for the OS and your most important games and you're set. This includes a good one (You could also make do with a 128GB if you want to save a little cash).
