Is my new build a good enough setup to run games like GTA V,BF4,COD:AW etc at max?

Hey guys as you've already read the title,here are the the specs my build will have:
CPU: AMD FX-6350 (I don't plan on OC'ing now,but will in the future)
GPU: SAPPHIRE RADEON R9 270X 4GB GDDR5
RAM: CORSAIR VENGEANCE BLUE 8GB (2x4)
Motherboard: MSI 970 GAMING OR MSI 990FX -GD65 (please recommend)
HDD: WD 1TB CAVIAR BLUE
CASE: ANTEC GX300 WINDOW OR ANTEX GX500 WINDOW OR CORSAIR SPEC 01
PSU: THUDER COOLMASTER 500 W
OPTICAL DRIVE: ASUS DRW 24X BLACK BULK ECO (SATA)
Is my build going to be able to run all new games or should I get other parts?
Thanks.

  1. there are a few parts that you should definitely change. What country do you live in and what is your budget?
  2. My budget is something like 630$(that's how much these should cost) but my region is the Middle East.Getting parts here isn't easy and if I order from amazon it'll be a lot more.I can get all the parts here locally for almost 800$.If I could just get everything from Amazon and I think I'll find a way to do that.What parts should be changed?
  3. CPU i3 4160

    GPU 270x, 280x, or gtx 960, whatever you can afford. The gtx 960 consumes less power but is less powerful than the 280x

    RAM 2x4 gb of 1600mhz CAS 9 or less

    motherboard h97 annevesary or b85m pro4 or h97 pro4

    hdd wd blue 1tb or seagate barracuda

    case: whatever you like. i recommend the source 210 and corsair 200r

    PSU: Get a tier 1 or 2 PSU that is at least 500W for this build here - http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html

    The power supply is the most important part that you want to invest in. The gpu is definitely what affects performance in games the most.
  4. Thanks for all the parts,but the problem is finding them all here is not easy.I've already found all the parts for my current build and I would like to know if its OK to use it and if I'll get 50+fps.

    it will.

    One last question though,is the AMD FX-6350 better than the FX-6300?I'm sticking with AMD rather than Intel because of the higher clock speed and 2 more cores than the i5.Secondly,Is the MSI mobo good?I don't really like the design of gigabyte mobos so thats why i chose the MSI.Also,sorry for the noobish questions,its my first build (:

    the AMD cpu wont perform as well in games as the intel CPU. Even an i3 4160. It is better for rendering. Cores and ghz are not an accurate measurement of performance.

    the 6350 is better than the 6300.

    The motherboard is good but seems a bit overkill for your price range, but it is a good motherboard. I would just try to get the parts i recommended above if you can. You should definitely go with intel if you are gaming.
