Opinions on my build please? (HELP)

Hey thank you for checking my build out! Okay, to start off, my goals are to play games like CS:GO, Runescape, and some fps games such as battlefield 1, (Medium settings?) and skyrim. (no mods) A little bit of video editing on the base elgato software for the original elgato: game capture would be nice as well. I am a sophomore, and will be getting a job over the summer, so I can further upgrade my CPU later for intensive video editing. I have a few questions: My friend gave me his old 500W PSU and I want to know if that will be enough for this build? (Lists at 320W) My big question is though: Can I achieve my goals I said earlier? Thank you so much and please help me out. Also, any opinions are very welcome whether they be good or bad. Build: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/PWFYd6

500W PSU and I want to know if that will be enough

That shall be plenty.

Edits on build:

  • The aftermarket CPU cooler is not necessary as the i3 6100 already includes a stock cooler. Unless you want your build to look nicer there is no real reason to spend the extra money.

  • You shouldn't really rely on parametric filters for SSDs as some can be really awful. I wouldn't say the AMD R3 240GB performs badly but I am uncertain of it's reliability as it currently has no PcPP reviews and isn't so popular. An alternative that performs a little better and trustworthy is the Adata Premier SP550 (comparison). Or if you are willing to spend a few more dollars you can go with the PNY CS1311 (comparison).

These.

Also; who makes the 500W PSU your friend is giving you? What does it say on the label?
