Building new Gaming RIG, want help with the Compatibility of the parts?

Hi Guys

I'm building a new Gaming system, not a very high end one but good enough in my budget.

My problem is, I am new to this and I don't know if the Parts I've selected will fit together. Also need suggestion for a 24" Montior, GPU and PSU, also do I need to add any Network card for Ethernet or WiFi.

I am from India, I am building this only for Gaming and Watching movies.

My budget is around 80,000 - 100,000 rupees /// 1200$ - 1500$ dollars


CPU: Intel i5 7600K - Processor on Amazon India

MOBO: Asus Z270 Prime-A - Motherboard on Amazon India

HDD: WD Blue Desktop 1TB Internal Hard Drive - HDD on Amazon India

SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB - SSD on Amazon India

GPU: Asus STRIX-GTX970 - GPU on Amazon India

RAM: Corsair 8GB (1 x 8 GB) DDR4 RAM - RAM on Amazon India

PSU: Corsair RMx Series™ RM650x - PSU on Amazon India

Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212X - CPU Fan on Amazon India

Cabinet: Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 5 - Cabinet on Amazon India

Monitor: Asus VG248QE 24-inch - Monitor on Amazon India


I'm kind of a noob, so please help.

Thanks

    It honestly isn't bad. But why go with a last generation GPU and stick with a modern generation CPU? some may recommend Skylake, but if it works, it works. I could find the prices for everything, but I see you already have them. The only thing to really change is the GPU and bump it up to 16GB. I would try something like this:

  2. I just want to know if everything is compatible with each other or not and if 650W PSU is enough for this RIG.
