Default Will it work?

Hi guys,

I've been looking to build up a pc for a while now, and i've been pointed in the direction of a few parts as follows:

Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD 7850 OC Windforce 2X 2048MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card w/ Nexuiz, Sleeping Dogs & Dirt Showdown PC Games

AMD Bulldozer FX-8 Eight Core 8150 Black Edition 3.60Ghz (Socket AM3+) Processor - Retail

GeIL EVO Leggera 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 PC3-14900C10 1866MHz Quad Channel Kit (GEL316GB1866C10QC)

BenQ GL2055 20" Widescreen LED Monitor - Black

OcUK Battle 650W Dual Rail High Efficiency Modular '80 Plus' Power Supply

Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB SATA 6Gb/s 16MB Cache - OEM

Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 AMD 760G (Socket AM3+) DDR3 MicroATX Motherboard ** FREE NEXUIZ GAME **

Cooler Master Elite 333 Midi Tower Case - Black

Would i have any compatibility issues - and would this run well as a setup ? Any advice / change to parts advice would be hugely appreciated !

i am just curious. are you buying the FX-8Core only because it is am 8 core CPU?
a Previous generation i5 quad core (the i5-2500) are in most situations faster then a 8 core buldozer.
Don't expect it to be a KickAss CPU just because it is an 8-core.

Are you sure 20 inch screen is big enough for you? i will personally never go below a 24 inch monitor.

Sure you need 16GB of RAM? i think 8 gig is fine for you. are you doing any heavy 3D modeling or running any virtual machines?
