Cheap (decent) mid-range gaming pc?

I am searching for a cheap but still decent gaming computer. After a day of research I found this:
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4 GHz Black Edition
CPU fan: Cooler Maser 212 plus
GPU: Radeon HD 7750
Motherboard: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
Power supply: ANTEC Neo ECO 450C
Case: Corsair 400R

So my question is, will it work properly and if not what should I change? It is manly for games like Guild wars 2, World of warcraft and also Call of Duty. For sure I will also use it for school.
Sorry for my poor English I come from Belgium and haven’t yet finished my last year in high school


PS: I didn’t include any hardware because I could always add one and I could start with an old one. Either did I with the optical drive.

whats your budget in euros and what website are u using to purchase it?

@jhafner: as high as possible, 1980x1080 if it could run. But still with a decent frame rate.

@iceclock: as cheap as possible XD, if it less than 500euro, it would be amazing.

Yeah it is a great deal but is 4Gb enough and is a CPU cooler that not important?

(And I just love corsair r400 case xD but that is some personal opinion)

Oh and isn't it cheaper to chose and to build your self a compute?
(So you only buy what you need)

I see they use only intel cpu and I thought intel is much more expensive than AMD. Why aren't they useing AMD cpu? (Intel has better quality than AMD? Is it worth the money?)
