Is This A Good First Budget Build?

Just like the title say's, i want to know if this is a good budget build that can run next generation games such as: Battlefield 4, Metro Last Light and other demanding games at 1080p resolution. I will most likely be playing most of the games on medium settings, if you can could you please provide the FPS clocking i would receive at each setting (Low,Medium,High) with these specs on the games listed above.

CPU: AMD FX 6300 6 Core Black Edition
GPU: MSI Radeon 7850 1GB DDR5
PSU: Corsair 430W 80+ Bronze
RAM: 4GB Corsair Vengeance CL9 DDR3 (Will Upgrade To 8GB When i have Another £30-£40)
HDD: 1TB Western Digital Blue 7200RPM
OD: Asus 24x Internal SATA DVD Drive
MotherB: Asus M5A97 LE R2.0
Case: CiT Vantage Mid Tower Chasis

    I have your CPU, and think it is very nice. My suggestion would be to bump up to 8gb RAM (which you said you would :D), and 2gb memory for your GPU, since next gen games are more memory dependent on the GPU. Also, 430w PSU is a little small for this kind of build, so I would suggest a 500w. Do you have a budget?

    at least 500-600 w psu would be better if u want option to go more powerful gpu in future


    If i go for a more powerful GPU, i'll upgrade my power PSU aswell because im currently on a tight budget. Also this computer should last me 2-3 years before i upgrade GPU and PSU.

    Yes xD on a budget, The 2GB version of 7850 Is like £20-30 more >.> also 500w is £10 more, i heard that 430 would suffice with this build..? Also the RAM I will definitely upgrade to 8GB as i could just put another 4GB stick in down the line.
