Swap 750k and the Mb for an FX 6300 and a ok 970 board. the extra two cores will help in games. also if possible get a HD7770 as i believe they arent much more expensive. However if you cannot make these changes then yeah the build looks fine and will all fit and stuff :D 

For around $650 heres a build
