Everything looks good, you'll have to upgrade your GPU if you want to play demanding games at near max settings though.

I'd get a FX-6300 and then a HD 7850.

Everything looks pretty good, but for max graphics, you might need a better GPU. Also, I would go with Intel, but that's just personal preference.

This is a good and popular power supply here at the forums:
