It's decent, i'd get the FX-4300/FX-6300(recommended) if possible though, and check if the psu is a decent one.
If possible look for the 7850, it will be much better.

Ok thanks for the feedback, I will look into it! Still looking for feedback on how the games will run.

It will run at high settings with a 7770 for those games, they're not demanding ones.
But it's better if possible going with the cpus above mentioned and the gpu.

If i got the AMD Fx 6300 and the 7850 card and upped the power supply to 600w would that be more ideal?

Minecraft and WoW should be no problem, even at 1080p. Never played LoL, so I can't comment on that one. Skyrim would struggle at the highest settings at 1080p, but if you will be running at a lower res and/or turn the settings to medium it should also run fine.

edit: this comment was for the original post, if you do get the 7850 then skyrim should run at high no problem.

That will be good, you'll have a good cpu and gpu, it's not the wattage of the psu, but the quality of it, a decent 500W psu will do.

Thanks for your feedback! A little knew to the gaming computers, until a few months ago I could not point out the graphics card in a computer haha! so all this feedback is welcomed thanks!

Alright thanks for your help! By the way what is a good brand for a power supply? The one I am at atm is an ATX I think, would a corsair be better or is the ATX ok?

Yes, get a corsair psu, they're good ones.

I have a gtx 260 which is one tier below your Radeon HD 7770 and i can run Skyrim on ultra on 1900x1000 with good fps but.....only with shadows off or else it lags a little here and there. I can't use the HD texture pack for skyrim without a little lag even with shadows off. I also can't use some of the really demanding mods for skyrim without a little lag. Since your graphic card is only one tier above mine. I don't think it would be enough if you plan to use some heavy mods or the HD texture pack. Hope this helps you in some way.

Like Django said I think I am going to up the components, but anyways I do not think I will use mods, I just want to play the game, believe it or not I have never played it and barely finished Oblivion lol!
