Grab a Asrock Z77 Extreme4 for the motherboard. It will be better. Also maybe get a 650 watt (Same series) power supply and degrade the GPU to a 7870 XT. Also get a WD Blue 1TB 64MB cache hard drive, it will be much faster

Bro I don't know enough to give you complete advice for your build, but I know for a fact you're gonna need a bigger HD. try the first suggestion "Also get a WD Blue 1TB 64MB cache hard drive, it will be much faster." (wtalk2)

Upgrade to the CX600M. It will provide more power and is modular. Modular power supplies allow you to plug in only the cables you need and the rest stay unplugged and don't clog up your case.

Thanks for your help, would it be too much to ask how well a game like league of legends/ WoW would run on this?

You would be able to play League and WoW at MAX setting at around 60 FPS I'm guessing. You will be fine for those games.
