All your components look compatible and would work. I would recommend this for the PSU

If building around that motherboard I would suggest going with an Nvidia based graphics card. Just a recommendation (less change to conflict with the Nvidia chipset)

Maybe change the RAM to something like this

If you don't need it you can loose the sound card and use the onboard audio.
