Well, I was building a mid-high range PC for about 900$ and these are the parts I have chosen.
Asus M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ Mobo
Corsair Builder Series CX600 PSU
G.SKILL RipjawsX 1866MHz 2x4gb
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler
1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 64mb
And the big question is :
AMD FX-6300 + NVIDIA GTX 760 or AMD FX-8320 + AMD R9 270x?
I really do not know which one to choose.
and which case should I get? i just want a simple black mat case that everything will fit into for as cheap as it is possible :) 
I will be playing Crysis 3, Battlefield 4, and other games. I would like this computer to last at least 4 years, so I would be thankful for some suggestions with all the parts.
Thanks!

Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 seems to be a overall better card from benchmarks.
If AMD Mantle interest you, in which we don't know how much of a improvement it will really make, you might one to swing for the R9 270X.

I think you should get FX 8320 + R9270x.
crysis3 and bf4 are cpu exhaustive games and 8320 is way much powerful than 6300.
So it will come in handy

Since few games can use more than 2-3 cores, I would pick the FX-6300 and the stronger GTX760 graphics card.

You are wise to spend your budget on parts vs case.
Here is a reasonable one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If your games are cpu intensive, consider spending a bit more in a Intel quad.

Fx 6300 or fx 8320

I5 3570k or i5 4570k

Gtx 760 or 770 or you can pick up a gtx 750 next month

So if I get the gtx 760 combo, will i be able to play new titles for at least 2 years? If not, suggest something what would improve my build, but not increase the price for more than 50$.Thaanks btw!

Gtx 760 should be able to handle games on High to Ultra settings 45-60fps no problem for the next two years.

Psu is good to, just the right balance, me personally I wouldn't go down any lower.

Personally I would not go with a CX PSU form Corsair. They have poor quality capacitors with fail easily under the smallest amount of heat. I lost most of my first PC build to a cx600.

Look at XFX550. It is MUCH better quality and around the same price.
