It's all compatible, though, you have selected just 2GB of ram, that's really low for nowadays, specially when the ram is going to be shared with the gpu.
500W is more than enough, but the coolmax psus are rubbish, i'd get a quality one with less wattage, like the corsair CX430 or antec vp-350 or vp 450, antec neo eco 400W.
Also what's the usage of the future pc ? You can do a lot better if you can buy the parts in other canada shops.

This would be the best. Overbudget by $20 before rebates but best value for gaming. you will have no problems playing games at med-high.

Hope this helps. It's expensive but the parts are really good. If you want to cheapen it up get a cheaper case but that's all you should cut costs with.

Hi cutebeans that build does look good but I prefer dual channel memory which i could switch out on my own. I have seen people say that micro ATX is useless for anything but the lowest stress computer software, is this true? The intel pentium is an older CPU model and before I was more interested in AMD does this make much difference? i'm not trying to criticize that build or you and thankyou for your help.
