So Im building my first gaming computer on a budget, Im trying not to spend over $700 on the main parts (internals). Im trying to run games like WoW, Diablo 3, etc. on highest settings and games like BF3, Crysis, Skyrim, on medium settings. Here is what I have planned on ordering so far. Anything I should change? Also what case should I use for it?

CPU-
FX 6300 Black Edition 3.5GHz Six-Core Socket AM3+ Boxed Processor

GPU-
Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1 GB

MOBO-
ASUS P8Z77-V LK LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX

RAM-
STT DDR3 SDRAM 8GB 2x 4G DDR3-1600 MHz PC3-12800 240pin

Hard Drive-
Seagate 1 TB,Internal,7200 RPM,3.5"

Power Supply(enough wattage?)-
Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500w Power Supply

Case Fan-
Delta FFB0912SH-F00 92mm Case cooler

CPU Cooler-
COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler

If I need to add or get rid of anything, idk if I need anymore fans, also I need to a case to fit all any reccomendations?

looks solid, except that the processor and the motherboard arent compatible.

What form factor you looking at, ATX, mATX, ITX?
Case and MoBo would differ depending (obviously).

EDIT:
Here are some suggestions anyway:) 

ATX - BitFenix Merc Beta
Love this case, affordable price, minimalistic, sleek; in my opinion anyway!:D

mATX - BitFenix Merc Beta
I would personally still use the Merc Beta.

ITX - BitFenix Prodigy
Large for an ITX case I know, but reasonable(ish) price and lots of cooling/space.

Looks like I have a thing with BitFenix I know, but they offer really good cases at decent price points
Hope this helps!;)
