Is this a good build for 600$?

This is my first time building a computer, And im having trouble as to which part's to get/what's the best for my money. So I am wondering if this build is good for the under 600-650$ range.

I just want to play some higher demanding game's like Skyrim,StarCraft 2, and possibly DayZ.

Intel Core i3 3220

Sapphire HD 7770 OC

Asrock B75M-GL

Corsair CX430

MS Taurus Tower

ASUS DVD Burner

Western Digital Blue 500GB

4GB RAM Transcend

Is what im looking at right now.

So basically im wondering if there's anything I should swap out and put in something else to make it better.
