So I am building a new computer and am not too sure about the parts being compatible with the PSU. Here are the specs:
-AMD FX 8320 8-Core CPU
-ASUS GeForce GTX660Ti - 2GB GDDR5 - (980MHz, 6008MHz)
-G.Skill 8GB (2 x 4GB) PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3 RAM
-LG GH24NS95 DVD-RW Drive
-Xigmatek XAF F1256 Fan - 120x120x25mm
-Western Digital 1000GB (1TB) 7200rpm SATA-III
-Gigabyte GA-990FXA-D3 Motherboard
-CoolerMaster Elite 431 Plus Midi-Tower Case
And the PSU is the Aereon 700W ASC-700C
Would that run well?

I don't know who makes the aereon power supplies; I recommend one of these brands if you can get them. Go by the 12v rail rating in amps, not the wattage. 35-40 amps is the minimum I would use. Antec, ocz, corsair, seasonic, xfx, and enermax are usually fine.
