I am making a 600 $ build and i need some opinion for my build,i will mostly use it for gaming DotA 2 and LoL and sometimes higher demanding games like GTA V, Assasins Creed Black Flag , Watch Dogs , FIFA 14, NBA 2k14 etc.
Can this setup run the higher demanding games on high settings.

good enough, except the PSU, shouldnt be a cheap CM generic psu. buy a good one

you can go for fx 6300 build if you want to

Radeon 270 is the same as 270X, only 100MHz slower. the rest is exactly the same
fyi, Radeon 280 3GB is only $200

yes, in term of performance

you can overclock the CPU to 4.4GHz and GPU to around 1GHz (after you learn to do it someday)
it will surely add 20%-30% juice to the raw performance
