First Gaming Pc build $1500-1700 max looking for any advice

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.

    Sorry for the new question but Ive never posted anything is that a suggested build for me? lol or is that your build? If so thats awesome would save moey and get the parts faster
  3. 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
