ok... this is my first time building a gaming computer. I would like to stay around the 500 $ range for now. If somebody could tell me if what parts im getting is correct and or give me suggestions on what i could do better that would be great. Also I have purchased any parts yet.

Skip the aftermarket CPU cooler (you won't need it out of the gate) and spend the extra to get a quad core CPU....

And, if you can Corsair CX500 or CX600 power supply the one you've chosen is a very poor brand.....

Do you think this computer will be able to play games like cod and future shooters?

Sure, (but you really have to upgrade to a quad core CPU...)

Your FPS will be much higher than shown, since you'll dial back from "Ultra" settings to around Medium for most games...
