I play minecraft and I love to pvp but I can't get over 20 fps and I wanna play fps games but my graphics card is outdated and can't run battlefield 3
Here's what I picked out
PCPartPicker part list:

The western caviar is simply for price to replace my 64gb ssd since its not shown on PC part picker

I'm not sure if I should invest into 12gb
I would like to play minecraft on ultra settings and battlefield on ultra settings as well

No need for 12gb RAM, 8 is fine. I left in the WD as the place holder but upgraded to a much better GPU and better CPU cooler, also a better PSU, and same speed but cheaper RAM. The Case is a mid-tower so it's smaller but it has very good airflow and is one of the best budget cases on the market.
