I believe so. If you plan on doing other things like streaming as well you can try this build as well, granted you can change the case ifyou don't want to spend ~$200 on one

Looks decent... my only comment is that you might want to get a better power suppply 500 watts is barely enough to handle the GPU you might consider getting at least a 750 watt one. Other than that OK build.
