This is my first computer build and I've been working on it for a while. I plan on ordering the parts soon and I want a second opinion on the list of parts before I order. Please tell me if this is a good build and if I can make any improvements for around the same price. Also, I would appreciate it if you could tell me what quality I would be playing games such as Battlefield 4 and Skyrim on. Thanks in advance.

Here is the list:

CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core $109.99
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing $29.98
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 Micro ATX AM3+ $44.99
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 $76.98
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM $59.98

If you feel like spending a little more, get a r9-270x. It has better performance than the 660. Aside from that, you're good.

Get the msi gaming series r9 270 instead of the 270x. i think that its the same price as the 660 on newegg and you get slightly lower performance (like 5%) for a lot cheaper

also do you plan on overclocking? if not than use the stock cooler and get a nicer power supply (80+ gold)
