:welcome: WafflePC.

Yes, it is good enough, but some observations FYI..

8GB of RAM is enough for a gaming machine, you do need more for photo/video editing.   2400MHz RAM will require you to manually set the timing and voltage, and you may need to O/C the CPU, to run stable, as the memory controller max default supported RAM speed is 1866MHz.

TIM not really required as the CPU has the new Wraith Cooler, Thermal paste already applied. 

 

PSU.   A bit overkill, unless you intend dual GPUs.   Your PCP list, top right, shows 366w TPD. A 550/600w PSU will still give plenty of headroom.

 

Drives..   You have an SSD as Boot drive, consider using a 250GB.   If the Hybrid drive is for storage?? you only need a standard spinner, like this > http://www.newegg.co...ID=3938566&SID=

 

Anti Virus.   Consider using a free one, I've been using this one for years, http://www.avira.com/en/free-antivirus-windows

Gday WafflePC.

Been a while since we heard from you!!!   How is your selection of parts going? or have you started the build?   Let us know if you have further questions or need any help.   An update would be appreciated.

 

Thanks
