Will this gaming rig work?

I want to build my first gaming rig after my last computer broke. I already have the components choosen (budget about 650€; primary for gaming with one monitor) but don´t know if this will work / is compatible:

Yes, but you may be better off with an Athlon 860K if you aren't planning on upgrading your CPU within the next year. What games will you be playing?

Works fine afaik, can play most games taht are not AAA maxed at 1080p and some lighter ones like BSI.

Would get a EVGA or Corsair PSU and a Sapphire GPU if they are same price, I wouldn't fork out for one if they are more expensive by more than 15 euros.

Why would you change the PSU? XFX PSUs are all made by Seasonic.

I've always used Corsair PSUs, even the basic ones have low fan/0dcb mode.

Could just be fanboying.

I wouldn´t like to go with an AMD CPU, I had some bad experience with them. Would the GPU heavily limited by the i3? I would mostly play games like CS:GO, Battlefield etc.

Is there a good reason to go with Sapphire? The Asus one sounded good to me.

As long as you aren't playing games that really like quad cores (GTA V), you should be fine with an i3.

I have -.-

EVGA has a much better customer service and warranty as well.

Except to get a PSU of the same quality you have to pay $20-$40 more.

Are the case fans connected to the mainboard or to the PSU? The mainboard describtion says it has only one "system fan header", will this be a problem?

You will only be able to connect one fan to the mobo unless you get a fan splitter. The other fans will connect to the PSU and run at full speed.

I know I´m probably annoying, but if I switch to an i5 (http://de.pcpartpicker.com/p/WwybmG) would this also work? And would it even make sense with this 'low-end' mainboard?

 

Sorry if I am kind of stupid, this is the first time I build a pc.  ^_^

 

EDIT: Maybe I should use this one instead? http://de.pcpartpicker.com/p/Zzpj6h
