I am building my first gaming pc, though i do not know weather these parts will get the job done. I need expert advice on this

I have recently started reviewing parts for my own pc build and have collected a list , but one problem is that i dont know if these parts will cut it, for what i require them to do. Any help is appreciated.
1. Asus 24x dvd-rw internal optical drive.
2. EVGA 430W ATX 12V-Rail
3. Seagate Barracuda 500GB SATA 6GB/S 16MB cache
4. ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
5. Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 2133 MHz
6.AMD FX-8370 FX-Series 8-Core Black Edition
6. HD 7870 GIGABYTE GV-R787OC-2GD Radeon GHz Edition 2GB GDDR5

That is all of my parts please tell me if they will do the job or if i need to re-shop some more, Thank you.
