Will these parts work?

Hello this is the build that I am thinking about using for my very first budget gaming computer (excited and nervous).

CPU: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0325874 Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition 3.4GHz

GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102948 SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6870 1GB

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341017 ModXStream Pro 600W Modular

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231468 G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB

HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152181 Samsung by Seagate Spinpoint 500gb

DvD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827136247 LG DVD Burner

Cooler: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065 COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 Plus

Case: http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0386580 Z11 Plus ATX Mid Tower Computer Case


Now the main thing that I want out of this build is to be able to play GW2, D3, and Skyrim maxed out. BF3 (and others) medium and up. Will all these parts work for that? and anyway to cut the fat to save some bucks? Thaanks!

More about will parts work
  1. Yes, it will all work nicely. What size screen do you use?
  2. As of now I want to use my 32" HDTV, but later on I want to get a 1080 monitor
  3. Yes, a 6870 will put out the graphics performance that you need for a single monitor. I have a 6870, and can average ~40 fps on BF3 with most things turned on on a 1920 x 1080 22" monitor.
  4. What CPU are you using?
  5. I'd swap the PSU to a Corsair TX 650 and pump up the GPU to a 7950. However, that build is close to mine and it will certainly push those games you mentioned. By maxed, you may have to drop the AF/AA down a bit.
