Will this build be able to play modern games on high settings at 50fps plus?

Will everything fit inside the case?
Also, is it the power supply enough or do i need to upgrade it to 500watts or something?

Thanks,
Lucas

    The cx430 PSU has only one pcie connector (the 760 needs 2), and you
    don't have a lot of +12v amp headroom, not enough to stress via OC, etc,
    you should upgrade.

    Battlefield 4 mainly at 1080p on high or so

    What's your budget - don't think I can find a quality 500w unit for
    what the cx430 cost.

    $40 after mir and modular: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139050

    and a step up for $45 after mir: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1550sxxb9

    Graphics card should be fine for Battlefield 4 @ 1080p.

    For a system using a single GeForce GTX 760 graphics card NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater system power supply that has a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 30 Amps or greater and that has at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

    Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) rated at 45°C - 50°C ambient temperature, is the most important factor.

    Since you're getting an Intel Haswell CPU you may want to get a PSU that supports Haswell's C6/C7 sleep state.
