Some changes to your build. i dont know your budget but here goes:
1. You have a chosen a poor gaming CPU in the AMD FX 4100. Go with an Intel CPU/mobo like this:

Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz $219
MSI Z77A-G45 Thunderbolt LGA 1155 Intel Z77 $144

Power Suppy
OCZ ZT Series 750W Fully-Modular $109

You dont need 32 gb of RAM; Try this:
Kingston HyperX Black 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 $89

Graphics Card
SAPPHIRE 100351SR Radeon HD 7970 $389

Your case choice is fine.

If you don't have the money for Z77 mobo then a H77 mobo and i5 3470 is still a WAY better solution than the FX.

1080p resolution an 7870 would be optimal, or even a 660ti, 7950 would def do fine. depends on your gaming resolution. and you only need 1600mhz ram. anything more dose not add fps and amd has garbage memory controller to support more than 1600 anyways. personally i would rather go intel i3- 2120 with an asus or msi-gd 45 or better board. but if you really want amd, id say get yourself an ASRock 990FX Extreme3 AM3+ board and save yourself some cash for a cpu cooler like a cooler master 212. or even better. id rather AMD FX-4300 Vishera 3.8GHz over the zambezi, costs a little more, but i'd say its worth it. If you rather go amd of course. 8 gigs would be enough ram as well, although if you want more ram power to you.
