I'm planning to build my own pc and so far I've gathered ASUS P8H67-M PRO/CSM motherboard, Antec Green Energy-Efficient Power Supply EA500D, Windows 7 64 bit Home, DRR3 1333MHz Ripjaws 2x8GB. I was wondering if there are anymore components I would need to complete my list, I don't plan to get a sound card as the motherboard has an 8 channel already.

What graphic cards can I get for 1280x1024, MIGHT get a larger monitor in the future, not sure. My budget is maximum of $200, I can go a LITTLE higher, but that's all. I want something that can be used for Crysis and BF3.

Edit: I don't plan to overclock anything seeing as my tower would be in a confined space.

If you think you'll get a larger monitor, I'd suggest a HD6870 or GTX560. If not, nothing more than a HD6850. You could use a HD6770 or HD6790, but I suspect the price difference over the HD6850 isn't worth it.
Your EA-500D will have no trouble with any of those.

A cpu would be a good idea... jtt has it right as far as the card goes. 16gb of RAM is quite pointless for the average user.

^Yes, you'll need a CPU. If you'll never overclock, save a few bucks and get an i5-2400 or i3-2120; the stock cooler will be sufficient.
