Hey guys i am New to building my own gaming pc and here's what i had in mind:
AMD FX-8350 BLACK EDITION
ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0 MOBO
GTX 760 2GB GRAPHIC CARD
CORSAIR 8GB X 2 1600 MHZ RAM
128GB SSD TO INSTALL WINDOWS 7
1TB SEAGATE HARDRIVE
212 EVO COOLER MASTER CPU COOLING FAN
80O WATT CORSAIR GUK

I dont know which cabinet to use was thinking of a cooler master but dont know which one would support these specs and how many additional fans required to stop it from overheating.

I am also not sure about O.C the C.P.U maybe later on but 90% I doubt it.

Are these specifications good for decent gaming for an average of 2 hours a day and also if there are no issues with the mobo and the processor and if the windows can be installed separately on the SSD and how long will this PC last for ?

I am looking forward to play Microsoft Flight Simulator X with maxed out settings and upcoming games such as GTA 5.

I cannot find specs on that motherboard...

Regardless, get an Asus m5a99x evo r2.0. Great features and high OC potential if you choose.

I would go with an FX 8320 and use the money toward a bigger SSD. The FX 8320 is the same cpu with the multiplier set at a lower value. It will match the 8350 with just a multiplier change. Getting an FX 8350 is a waste.

Thats an FM2 socket board. You need an AM3+ socket board for an 8350. Get the board I mentioned above.

I would not mind buying the 8350 it's pretty cheap over here in India but do I need a larger SSD to get Windows 7.. 64gb won't be good enough? I don't want to boot programs on it only windows

Thank you :)  I'll get the one which you told me to but what about the remaining specs.. Will it be a problem for reliability? And what about the powers supply?

Windows 7 fully updated will take quite a bit of that 64gb by itself. Add antivirus and any utilities to the mix and gets even higher. SSD's should not be run nearly full. 120gb would be the minimum I would want to run.
