You won't be abe to play BF3/Far Cry/Crysis etc; at ultra 1920x1080 and achieve even 30 fps. It will struggle. I'd replace PSU and case. You're going too cheap on those 2.

For 1080p I'd suggest atleast a HD 7850, though you are of course limited by budget. Techdude9 has a solid build though.

Arctic Cooling fans suck - they are no better than the stock fan that AMD includes. That case is also from a junk brand and I would get a different power supply. Maybe try this:

And then add whatever monitor you want. The Pentium G2120 is a good choice for a sub $600 rig.
