HELP on $500 gaming pc build mainly for planetside 2

Hi, I was looking into some specs for planetside 2 under a $500 budget, and i was wondering if these specs are good for medium settings, Here are my specs:

-Gigabyte Radeon HD 6670 2GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 DVI-I/HDMI/D-SUB Crossfire Ready --Graphics Card GV-R667D3-2GI
-Rosewill Galaxy-02-A Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ,comes with Two Fans-1x Front Red LED 120mm Fan, 1x Rear 120mm
-ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
-Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus - 550W Power Supply
-AMD Phenom II x4 Black 3.4 ghz(i hear that the gaming is mainly cpu intensive so would a Phenom II x4 do it?)

excluding ram and monitor since its pretty straight forward

Any suggestions on a different part or spec would be nice also =)

    I agree with Scremin34Egl. His build is much better. The only thing I'd change is the GPU.

    His/her build is good one to use.
