Use an AMD FX 8350 , 990FX motherboard and 8 gigs of RAM

Use a graphics card powerful enough to run the game well . Start at the 7850 and work your way up from there

and never ever ever buy a coolmax psu
80 + bronze or better rated units from reputable manufacturers only

The gamma is a dreadful case too . Only buy it if you have a sense of humor

Looks as though you're on a budget with the listed parts. First off you'll want to spend less on the CPU as all your other parts will bottleneck. If you're going with Micro ATX, I'd suggest going with a mATX case as they usually come with a PSU too. Your PSU is made by a company I am not familiar with so you may want to stay away from it and stick to SeaSonic, Corsair, or an reputable name. The CPU cooler will come with thermal paste so you shouldn't have to worry about buying any. What's your budget? I'll put something together that is around the price range your build is. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/EHro

NEVER use a psu that comes with a case. Common knowledge.

Take a look as the build I posted. It will be considerably better than this one.
