Default First computer build. ~$600 budget

Hello. I am currently thinking of building a computer for the first time since the one I am using is really old. Could you guys give me some suggestions on a computer build? I would like to keep the price within $500 - 600. I will most likely use this computer for school and some casual gaming. For games I would like for it to run some of the newer and future games decently.

This is a computer build that I put together. I am not sure if all these parts are compatible with one another. If you guys have any suggestions or a better computer build for the money that would be great. Also, I don't need other things like a monitor, mouse, keyboard, or OS. Thanks.
