  1. Looks good. This will game on low/med settings at 1080p.

    You might want to look into a better GPU.

    Here is a 7770 for the same price as your gtx 650 and it will be about 20-30% better.
  2. I would not buy that motherboard . It has an nVidia chipset.

    For best compatibility and potential future upgrades buy a motherboard with an AMD 970 series chipset . They cost a few dollars more but that will more than pay off over time

    To offset the extra cost you could change the power supply to the Corsair CX 430 which can easily handle your build with either graphics card suggested
  3. Nice budget build. I don't think the cable management is very good on the cm elite. I recommend a corsair 200r for better cable management, but the cm elite is a decent pick as well. You could drop the price a bit by getting a ddr3-1600 ram. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820144614

    With that MB you chose you will not have much space for future upgrades... and HD 7770 is much more better than GTX 650...
    get Sapphire HD 7770 Vapor-X if you want better cooling performance for your GPU...
    or take Sapphire HD 7770 GHz which is much more better...
