Need help building my first gaming PC

I'm building my first gaming pc, and I need someone to tell me if these parts work together, or if I should reconsider something.

Here's my build:
Intel Core i5-6500 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor
Gigabyte GA-B250M-D3H Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
Kingston HyperX Fury Black 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4-2133 Memory
Sandisk SSD PLUS 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
MSI Radeon RX 480 8GB GAMING X Video Card
Corsair SPEC-ALPHA ATX Mid Tower Case
Corsair CXM 550W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply

    Also, do you know what games I can with these specs, and games that I'll have trouble running?
  3. What games do you want to play?

    Something like Overwatch, Doom, and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands
  5. Your computer shouldn't have an issue running those games. However for example, if you wanted to play Battlefield 1, memory requirements for that game is 16gb. Though 8gb system memory will run those games listed above with no issue, you'll inevitably will have to upgrade your memory as games are just now starting to utilize more than 8gb. It sounds like you like to play the latest triple A titles so It might be wise to spend a little extra money on 16gb so you don't have to deal with this in the near future.
