Newbie needs expert advice on PC-building

Hello everyone,

I'm super new into getting to know components of desktop. I am really planning to build my own desktop but I am just wondering about compatibility of those parts below. Please let me know.

CPU: AMD X-8 FX-8320
Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0
Heatsink: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO Direct Heat Pipe CPU Cooler R2
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GT 730 2GB GDDR5
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3-1866Mhz CL10
Storage: Seagate Desktop SSHD 2TB SATA3 64MB Cache
Case: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-02
Optical Drive: LG GH24NSC0 or Samsung SH-224GB/BSBE

Please let me know if those parts can be compatible with each others. Also, what kind of power supply should I get if this PC can be built.

I'm not looking into heavy gaming, just having smooth process while working and studying, maybe couple of games but not so hardcore.

Thanks in advance.
