[New Build Advice]

I'm going to build a computer for the first time and would appreciate your advice on the components I have selected. My intent is for it to function well on games like BF3, TF2, and future Bethesda games. Will all these parts work together? If so, do you think it would be a good gaming rig? Could it be upgraded in the coming years enough to keep up with future releases? Also, would the case come with fans, or do I have to buy those too?

Here are my specs:
CPU: Intel i5-3470 Quad core 3.2 ghz
Motherboard: Gigabyte Intel Z77 LGA1155
GPU: GTX 650 Ti 1gb
Power Supply: Cooler Master Silent Pro M-600W
Ram: Corsair Vengeance 8gb( 2 x 4gb)
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500 GB SATA III 7200 RPM 16 MB Cache
Case: Cooler Master HAF 912

I would rather not exceed the current total of this which is around $700.
