    Since you already ordered the parts, it does little good now to ask if they are going to work well together.

    Your parts selection is low to mid range at best. The mb is not a performance board. Gigabyte makes
    fine boards however this is one of their mid-level ie NOT performance boards.
    Hard drive. Again WD makes fine drives however NOT the blue series. Only the black series [or preferably a ssd] for a gaming system.
    Pw supply. Again corsair makes some fine pw supplies however the one you selected is NOT one of them. For a gaming system only the HX, TX, or AX line.

    In short the parts you have selected are fine for an office system ie running office, email, etc. They are NOT fine for a gaming machine and you most likely will be disappointed in their performance or longevity.

    Buy an XBOX or PlayStation (consoles I mean) for gaming unless the games you wanna play are PC only. Gaming on a PC is expensive.

    That's not true at all.
