Default First time builder seeking help

I am building a computer for the first time for gaming and academic work. I have picked out several components and was just wondering if they will work together. More specifically, if the power supply will be sufficient enough for the parts. I do not plan to overclock. Any assistance is much appreciated!

CPU: Newegg.ca - AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor
video card: VisionTek Unbelievably Real, The Ultimate HD Upgrade
RAM: Newegg.ca - CORSAIR XMS3 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX4GX3M2A1600C9
hard drive: Newegg.ca - Western Digital Caviar Blue WD10EALS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

It should all work... The psu is a good size and acceptible brand, so it will have no issues powering it all.

Someone will have an opinion on the RAM and cpu as theres always one.... I'm not smart enough to comment, but they are compatible.

Welcome to the forum.

Thanks. Can you tell me what the difference is between a regular ATX power supply and an ATX 12V power supply?

No, not without having to hunt you down and kill you after..........

Honestly, all I know is the ATX 12V is basically the new standard of psu... Which is backwards compliant.
