I believe that it works, although you should upgrade PSU for future upgrades.

Gday.
All your parts are compatible. It will be a very good gaming build.
Your total system power requirements, with one GPU, would be about 460 Watts so you could purchase a 650W PSU and still have over provisioning for adding extra or very large monitors, etc.
To buy more than the 750w, would be wasting money.

You have not included a OS in your build.

:welcome: JeffMCJefferson

I agree about the quality of the PSU on the list + as colleague iammykyl has advised a good quality brand minimum of bronze rated 650W PSU will suffice, I have however found a better quality brand bronze rated 750W PSU for you, it also has a 5 year warranty as opposed to the Helios PSUs 3 year warranty + it is less expensive, see here
