building my first PC, need advice

I am looking into buying a new PC because my 5 year old beast just doesnt cut it anymore. I will order the parts separatly on the first of december, on cybermonday. This is my first build so I just want to know if I have chosen the best value for money as possible. My budget is a 1000 euros or about 800 pounds.

CPU: AMD fx 6300 black edition
Gpu: Gigabyte gtx 970 g1
Mobo: Asus M5A97 R2.0
Ram:
HyperX FURY Series 8GB (2x 4GB) DDR3 1866MHz
Psu: EVGA Supernova 650W G1 Gold
Ssd:
Crucial CT256MX100SSD1 256GB MX100
Cpu cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
Case: nzxt h440
(I will use the hdd from my previous prebuilt PC so a new one isn't needed)

Will this PC be able to play recent games on decent settings?

Thanks in advance!
