How much is your budget?

Yes they are compatible. Looks like a good build. The two things I would say though is that Cooler Master power supplies tend to not be the best out there. I would recommend this one instead:

Also the GTX 650 is quite a weak card. Are you playing at 1080p? If so I'd recommend going for this card instead for $70 more:

If you want to maintain the price of the GTX 650, I'd recommend the 7770 instead, which can be had for the same amount, and is a much stronger card (in the region of 25% or so for most games).

My buget is around 800 dollars and what power supply's would be good to support all of my parts and I heard that CPU doesn't work with a amd gpu that's why I went with nvidia and thanks for all of the help.

Nope, your CPU will be fine with an AMD(ATI Really) GPU. Perhaps it was the motherboard they were talking about or something. With $800 you should be able to get an i3 and a 7870.

This is the power supply I would go for: For some reason it didn't work when I linked it earlier. This should be able to handle any single card setup (so you can upgrade stuff if you need without running out of power).
