It'll be fine. However, your part choices could be better.

GTX 950 > GTX 750Ti

i3-6100 > FX 6300

The Seagate Barracuda competes more with the WD Black than the Blue, and is the same price as the Blue.

A cheap sound card nor a cheap aftermarket cooler are necessary, as the motherboard has integrated sound and the cpu comes with a cooler.
