Compatibility help needed for hobby pc on a budget

I am getting ready for knee replacement surgery and will not be able to do anything in my woodshop or physical hobbies for a while. I would like to know if these parts are compatible and if they will work for light gaming, paintball pro, sketchup, and future controller for a cbc router. I already have a good atx full tower.

While all of those parts are compatible, there is one thing that i would change. the Graphics card is not powerful enough to run modern games. I would suggest going for at least a RX 550-560 if possible.

That GPU is worse than useless. Some modifications are required.
