No no no.
The FX-8120 is based on the crappy bulldozer architecture. If you're going with an FX processor, always go Vishera.
No need for 16gb of ram in games. Games only use 4-6gb of ram, max.
That Thermaltake case is low quality.
Motherboard is good, but if the OP plans to overclock, I would definitely consider a different motherboard. It lacks VRM heatsinks, which is something you want to overclock.
The 7950 is complete overkill for that resolution. OP, do you plan to upgrade your monitor anytime soon?

This will max out any game on your resolution.
Has a better quality psu and case.
Allows for overclocking if you add an aftermarket cpu cooler like the Hyper 212 EVO.

Definitely go with an NVIDIA card. I used a GTX 670 and could run everything on Ultra Mode all day long no problem what so ever.

Define really good? Do you mean like a standard 1080p one?
@Andrew: The GTX 670 costs $300. His budget is roughly $600-650 excluding the OS. I wouldn't try to fit in a GTX 670 as it will force him to cut down on the other components, which will be low quality.
Nothing wrong with AMD cards.

If you plan to get a 1080p monitor, this will do good:

I took my original recommendation and replaced it with a 7950.
It will do great in 1080p, and in a year or two when it starts to get a bit slow, you can buy a cpu cooler and overclock the FX-6300 to increase performance.


Edit: Actually, I just found a really good cpu/motherboard combo deal at newegg:

Switched out the motherboard for a much better one. It uses the 990FX chipset, which allows for crossfire in the future and overclocks much better in the future.
Additionally, it's cheaper!

would i need any additional fans, heat sink or water cooling system?

No need for extra fans, as the Corsair 300R has enough of those.
If you want to overclock, you will need an aftermarket cpu cooler. The Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO is probably the best option as it's cheap ($25-30) and does a great job at cooling which leads to great overclocking.

-Case is horrible quality. Horrible cable management and bad airflow. Get the Corsair 200R if you can't afford the 300R.
-GPU has horrible cooling. I would seriously spend the extra $20 for better cooling: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
-The psu is complete crap. Raidmax components are a joke as they are extremely low quality. The Seasonic psu I posted above is a much, much, much better quality psu at a slightly higher price. The Seasonic is a better buy.

Are you willing to use other websites like NCIX, Amazon, etc.?
