Default ~700$ Gaming pc. does this work?

So my laptop is about to die, and I've been getting into computer gaming a lot more than before, and there are some games coming out that i would like to play, but i certainly cant since my laptop barely run 4 year old games on the lowest settings :drool:

anyway, this is going to be my first build-PC, and I've come here to check to make sure everything on my list is compatible with each other and such :speechless:

heres the list. hope the link works

Link to the parts i would like to buy, if anyone has any recommendations for different/better/barely-worse-but-loads-cheaper parts i could use it would be greatly appreciated..
also i feel like I'm missing something :freak: so if you see any components missing please comment.My budget is 700$ and i think that this does it, but just came here to make sure.

Thanks for your time- all help appreciated :happy:

All the individual parts (just in case link above doesn't work):
