Going to use my build mainly to play new games either out now or in the future Battlefield 4, Titanfall, The Elder Scrolls V, Tomb Raider, Day Z on high or above settings.
Plan on buying the parts as I get paid so I wont get them all at the same time probably in a month or 2 I will have them all.
Not Sure if I should overclock or not since its my first time building.
I will probably hook this up to our Tv or buy a monitor not sure yet.

Here is my build

CPU AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core (Amazon Override) $189.99
CPU Cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing $29.99
Motherboard Asus SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 ATX AM3+ $164.00
Memory Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 $74.99
Storage A-Data S510 Series 60GB 2.5" SSD $84.99
Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM $85.37
Video Card EVGA GeForce GTX 780 3GB $508.99
Case Fractal Design Arc XL ATX Mid Tower $129.99
Power Supply Cooler Master 700W ATX12V / EPS12V $124.99

Total: $1393.30
I had planned to add more fans in but I am not really sure about the differences in them and I am not so sure if I have enough wattage. Any help is appreciated.

the games you want to play doesnt require much performance, a 700-800$ build would be enough to play these games at high->max settings 1920x1080, ~50-60+ fps
