Building first gaming pc need help!!

Ok hello everyone i am building a new moderate gaming pc and i like to know if these components are compatible with each other.If you have any better components at this price range to suggest and/or any thoughts positive or negative would be happily accepted of course along with the required thoughts behind them. ok so these are the components:

CPU:AMD FX-6300 105 euro

GPU:HD 7770(Already own that,dont wanna buy a new gpu,possible upgrade in future)

PSU: XFX PRO SERIES 550W 61 EURO

MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3P 93 euro (i chose that cause it has 8+2 which will allow me to OC "safely"..no need to go 990 i wont crossfire/sli) other mobos that i like: ASROCK 970 EXTREME4 at 90 euro or ASUS M5A97 R2.0 for 80 euro

CASE:ZALMAN Z9 PLUS BLACK at 60 euro (liked it cause its big for future upgrade and has good airflow) other cases that i like:ANTEC 300 60 EURO (Also i dont need usb 3.0)

CPU FAN:COOLERMASTER HYPER 212 EVO 33 EURO.OTHER CPU FAN: ZALMAN CNPS5X PERFORMA 17 EURO

RAM:CORSAIR VENGEACE 2X4 1600 mHZ CL9 80 EURO Other ram i like:kingston hyperX 2x4 fury 1600Mhz cl 10 80 euro)

HDD:CAVIAR BLACK 1 TB 7200 RPM 52 EURO

TOTAL COST:AROUND 500 EURO

I forgot to mention that I play at resolution 1920x1080 and i want to just play games at medium-high at 50-60 fps without lag :)

I Already own monitor mouse etc so i wont buy any of that.Also these prices are from a local internet site.i will NOT buy items from amazon ebay COUK or anything like that cause i wanna support local stores.Also these components are mentioned after a lot of search just so you know I dont want everything from you :) Thank you all for reading this large text and i hope that someone will be able to help me.

PS. Sorry for any mistakes that i did :)

My main concerns are about

1)Is this mobo good enough for ocing the cpu ??

2)should i choose fx-8320 for future-proof i can affford it and its only 35 euro more

3)Is the psu good enough?

4)The case i think its ok but if u can tell me your opinion

If you also can plz rate from 1 to 10 the components i listed :) I mainly wanna play all modern games at medium with 50-60 fps (watch dogs i am looking at you :) )

  1. Best answer
    1)Is this mobo good enough for ocing the cpu ?? (YES!)

    2)should i choose fx-8320 for future-proof i can affford it and its only 35 euro more (for gaming NO!)

    3)Is the psu good enough? ( YES!)

    4)The case i think its ok but if u can tell me your opinion (choose a zalman z12 plus or corsair 450d)

    If you also can plz rate from 1 to 10 the components i listed ( 6)
  2. hmm about the cpu..i think watch dogs currently uses 6 cores so i am thinking how future games will be like..About the case now:

    Zalman its 82 euro I think its expensive for a case and i dont like it :P Also corsair is 120 euro..Not gonna give so much for a case :)

    P.S I read very good reviews from amazon newegg and other sites..its very spacious has good airflow with 4 fans out of the box and i like its design :) So its down to if i get the fx-6300(i think its the best price-ratio cpu out there) or the 8320 for more future proof..

    Also another question(sorry for that) ocing fx-6300 will bring its potential near 8320?(cause i plan to oc:) ) Thank you for your patience and i hope you help me :)
