Building a Desktop. Need Advice!

hi, im 14 and saving up to build my own computer that overall costs around $700. ive found all these parts, and i need advice to know if it would be good enough to have around 35-45 fps for example on minecraft. Also, I'd like to know if there's anything better for around the same price or cheaper. Thanks in advance!
