That would game on medium fine. Consider changing the following...

CPU - I assume that should have been i3-3220... For roughly the same price (Newegg) consider the i3-3225 which has HD 4000 graphics. Even if you don't use it having the HD 7770, it would be better to have just in case.

MEM - DDR3-1600 can be found for the same price. You are find with standard CL9 modules, but stick with 1.5v.

HDD - Skip WD unless you are going with the Black or VelociRaptor series. The Samsung F3 1TB can still be found, or look toward Seagate.

PSU - FPS is OK, but consider going with Antec, XFX, Corsair or Seasonic. Some Antec, Corsair and XFX units are currently offering rebates. 350w would be fine, but might as well opt for a 450w unit as the cost differences are minimal.
