It will work, but with that budget i would suggest a intel build. Something like this take a look.

I agree with the Intel recommendations. The only reason to buy a FX-83xx right not is if you had an AM3+ and are upgrading from Phenom II or BD. The FX-6300 is a solid pick for budget builds though.

Yeah, this will be able to play what you want. And going with intel with the 115 chip set. will make upgrade options a little better for the future. If you ever decide to. But you shouldn't need to upgrade for quite sometime.
