This, honestly, doesn't really look any good. What is your budget for this build ?

This CPU is made for very low budget builds that can't afford to get a dedicated GPU. That PSU is from one of the worst PSU brand ever. If you're lucky, it will last, lets say maybe a few months ? If it ever works at all. That motherboard brand doesn't have the best reputation either, though that doesn't make as big of a difference, but it's still most of the time better to stick to either Asrock, Asus, MSI or Gigabyte, for the motherboard. This GPU isn't bad, but for your budget, it's possible to get a LOT better than that.
