I have never built a computer before, and I'm not sure what I am doing fully.

Here is my system so far;
Hard drive: http://www.ebuyer.com/319639-seagate-1tb-barracuda-inte...

Motherboard: http://www.ebuyer.com/454349-msi-b75ma-e33-socket-1155-...

GPU: http://www.ebuyer.com/519943-gigabyte-gtx-760-oc-windfo...

CPU: http://www.ebuyer.com/467680-cpu-core-i5-4570-3-20ghz-l...

RAM: http://www.ebuyer.com/397396-kingston-8gb-value-ram-ddr...

Case(including PSU): http://www.ebuyer.com/395158-coolermaster-elite-342-500...

DVD writer: http://www.ebuyer.com/516900-samsung-16x-sata-internal-...

OS: http://www.ebuyer.com/259863-microsoft-windows-7-home-p...

I not really sure if I have the correct PSU (500W) (with the case) for all the parts in the computer. I also need to know if all the parts of the computer are compatible with the motherboard and with the case.

The purpose of my computer is to be able to run games like Battlefield 4 at medium settings at 60fps ideally.

It will all work and a 500w power supply is fine and will do what you want it to. What is your budget though you maybe able too pull something better off.
