We cannot help you without a budget.

That is WAY too much motherboard for a low end CPU and GPU like that.

I would drop down to the ASRock 970 Extreme3 or 4 Motherboard and swap out the FX4100 for a FX4300

the 4100 and 6100 are crap. Get the fx-6300. Its considerably better. Drop the motherboard WAY down. something like $70-$80. And spend the money on a much better GPU.

I would try to get an hd 7850 or a gtx650ti. Those games should run at medium to high settings at 1080p with a 7770. BF3 will be medium, not high. But, if you want to play new games that are more GPU intensive you will be stock on medium setting at most with a 7770 at 1080p.

Maybe with 1366x768 resolution will it run on high?

A 500w psu will be more then enough for that setup, just make sure its from a good quality brand, i always recommend seasonic or corsair, but there other brand which will be just as good such as xfx, antec or coolermaster just to name a few.

Have you got a set budget for a case?

The Corsair Carbide 200R or 300R are great cases
Or if you want a small form factor case to go with the asrock b75pro3-m the BitFenix Prodigy is an amazing little case.
Anything from antec, coolermaster, fractal design or silver stone would be a good choice too.

I've changed my mind again with the motherboard, Is the gigabyte GA-B75M-HD3 good?
and also the GPU is changed to palit gtx 650 ti its cheaper than the evga one.

Yes, the gigabyte board is fine. The GPU will be exactly the same as the EVGA. Get whatever 650ti you like. They will all be the same.

cpu :i3 3220
mobo: gigabyte ga-b75m-hd3
ram : corsair vengeance 8gb (2x4)

Its way more than enough.

Your build plus a 650ti will run more than fine on a 500w PSU. No problem. 650w is plenty more than enough.

Since the corsair psu is expensive i have this two other choices the seasonic S12II-520w 80plus bronze and the enermax naxn 82+ series 550w 80plus bronze. Which of the two is good?
