I'm building my first computer.
I got a list of parts from an earlier thread but i changed a few things like adding a cooler, and a more expensive case.
I would like to know how well my parts will work together and if this computer would be able to play all games with maxed out or atleast very very close to max settings on a 720p Monitor.
I have changed my budget and would like to keep it as much below $800 as possible and still get great gameplay.
____________________________________________________________________________
Here is the list of my parts and where I'm thinking about buying from.(If you know of anywhere cheaper please let me know!):

CPU: AMD FX-8320 3.5GHz 8-Core Processor ($149.99 @ Amazon)

Motherboard: Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($114.99 @ Newegg)

Memory: G.Skill Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory ($52.99 @ Newegg)

Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($30.00 @ Ebay)

Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB Video Card ($160.66 @ Newegg)

Case: NZXT phantom 530 ($150.00 @ NZTX.com)

Power Supply: EVGA 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($29.99 @ NCIX US)

Thanks for the quick reply, and yea ive put everything on there I just wanted to make sure the website didn't get wattage or compatibility wrong. And also wanted some opinions on parts!

Thanks!

Well then you could maybe buy a less expensive case and put that money into. An SSD or more RAM but other than that it looks pretty solid :)
