is this a good gaming pc setup

Hi i am looking to build my own pc but I'm a noob and am not sure if the parts i want to buy are compatible with each other and support games such as league of legends, skyrim, swtor, and also work good for web browsing and youtubing, these are the parts that i was thinking of purchasing:

AMD Athlon II X4 640 Processor (ADX640WFGMBOX)

MSI 970 GAMING DDR3 2133 ATX AMD Motherboard

Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB 2x8GB DDR3 2400MHz PC3 19200 Desktop, Red CMY16GX3M2A2400C11R

Gigabyte AMD Radeon R7 240 GDDR3-2GB DVI-D/HDMI/D-SUB OC Video Card GV-R724OC-2GI REV2.0

Corsair CX600 CP-9020048-US 600W Power Supply

Western Digital Caviar Blue 500 GB SATA III 7200 RPM 16 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Desktop Hard Drive - WD5000AAKX

Apevia X-Hermes Metal Case with Side Window-Green X-HERMES-GN


so the main i want to know is if all these are compatible and if they will run games good

thanks

It's a very common rig.

While it looks compatible you can find reviews on that GPU aplenty. So I can't tell if they will run games good enough for you.

processor

i think i am going to get an AMD Athlon X4 860K Black Edition CPU Quad Core FM2+ 3700Mhz 95W 4MB AD860KXBJABOX instead because i heard it was better and its cheaper
