If I was you, I'd consider an Intel CPU, instead of an AMD one, and if you are planning to game on med to high settings, those are not the components you would look to buy- get better graphics card.

Anyways, if you are on a budget, yes this system is physically compatible, GPU fits in case, etc

However, to use the AMD 8350 you would have to do a bios update on your motherboard which is not a big issue.

And get a CPU heatsink- cooler master hyper 2012 evo, for overclocking/using the AMD 8350- https://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rr212e20pkr2

For the PSU, this will just run the system, but I'd recemmond a 550w PSU just in case-
