this will be my first pc build i will be starting mostly from scratch, i have little to no experience in this subject and i was wondering if the computer im going to make will be enough to play games like bf3, far cry 3, crises 3, arma 3 those kind of big fps shooters, and also what frame rates do you think ill be getting? and also are there any parts that are not compatible with the others?
cpu: AMD FX-4305 4.2GHz quad core processor
cpu cooler: noctua NH-D14 65.0 CFM CPU Cooler
motherboard: Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 ATX AM3+ motherboard
ram/memory: G.Skills rip jaws series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 -1600 memory
storage: seagate barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200 RPM Internal Hard drive
video card: MSI Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card
power supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 650W 80 + gold certified fully-modular ATX power supply
case: not fussed about looks, so some crappy old case from around 1995.
also for my monitor im going to run HDMI4 through to my samsung flat screen, if you see any problems regarding this let me know, thanks :) .

the only thing I might be concerned with is if there wil be interference between the cpu cooler (Noctua NH-D14), the possible overlap it will have with your memory slots and your RAM heighth.

With a expensive cooler and motherboard like that i would be looking at a minimum for the FX 6300.If you can't afford it buy a less expensive cooler and still get it.Talking about this makes me wonder whether the noctua even would fit in your "crappy old 1995" case.
There are coolers that will perform about as good or at least good enough and will cost less.

Are you aiming for crossfire? Otherwise get a decent and less expensive psu and put the money to a better gpu or case.

I don't know where you live (country=prices) and what your budget is,but look at something like the next and see if it is on par with your build when it comes to price,
