Budget Gaming pc build($650)

Hi, I'm looking for a good budget pc build. I'm new to pc so I would like to know how well my setup would run games like BF3/4, Crysis 3, Far cry 3, ect.. Will I be able to run BF3/4 on at least high at 1080p with this setup? If I can Improve my build and still stay within budget please let me know. Sorry if I sound like a noob or anything but like I said I'm new to this whole pc thing. I did some research and the best build that I came up with for my budget is this.

  1. It all looks good, but the CPU and GPU should be changed... here is some good ones that i have in my rig.

    Hi, I probably should have mentioned this in the post but the $650 budget is including the OS. Your build would put me a little too much over my budget. Anyways since I'm assuming you have a good amount of knowledge on this stuff, if I add the GPU and CPU the other person above stated have well would I be able to run graphically demanding games i.e. BF3/4? Low, medium, high, ultra? Like I said I'm fairly new to this any help would be great.
