It will run that hardware OK.

The power capacity is adequate. Check the motherboard and the power supply connectors in case the P/S has only a 20 pin connector, and also that it has the additional 12 volt 4 pin connector. Many motherboards with a 24 pin socket will accommodate a 20 pin connector, but be sure to position it correctly.
