Everything you listed is compatible I guess. You're missing details necessary to really help you out. Budget and what you plan to use the PC for would be great places to start.

It's compatible yes. What's your budget though? I would not skimp on the power supply under any circumstances.

My budget is around the $600, and about my power supply i was going to buy a cheap one, why is it so important?

If the supply fails (cheap ones die all the time) the rest of your components are likely to be fried.

Use www.pcpartpicker.com. You can input you build and check to see if everything is compatible as well as look at benchmarks, reviews, rankings, specs, etc.

What about case, monitor, ROM drive, OS, keyboard/mouse?

What he said. Cheap power supplies ARE NOT WORTH IT. If you get a bad one it will most likely take out your whole system with it. Brands to avoid are things like Coolmax, Raidmax, Enermax, Xion, Apevia, and so on. I've seen what happens when you use cheap power supplies - it's not pretty.
