Is this good for a budget gaming PC?

Hello,
I'm planning on building a budget gaming PC soon and I selected these parts on Pcpartpicker, will these parts work together and do you recommend swapping anything out for something else?

Thanks

    This is a good build but if you have the extra money get the 2GB version of the 7850
