Post First Gaming PC Build $1000-$1300

I have a few more months until i raise the funds for this build so i thought id start researching early on. This PC will be primarily for gaming and internet browsing(No video editing or anything of that sort). These are the parts i've managed to find so far:

Case:Cooler Master HAF 912 Mid Tower ATX Case

CPU:AMD Phenom II X4 965 AM3 3.4Ghz 512KB 45NM 125W 4000MHZ

Mobo:Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s

Memory:Corsair Vengeance 8 GB ( 2 x 4 GB ) DDR3 1600 MH

Power Supply:Corsair Builder Series CX600 600 watt 80 Plus Certified Power Supply

Hard Drive:Western Digital 1 TB Caviar Blue SATA III 7200 RPM 32 MB Cache

OS:Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium

Heatsink:Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler

Optical Drive:Asus 24xDVD-RW Serial ATA Internal OEM Drive

Graphics Card:Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 7850 2 GB GDDR5 DVI-I/HDMI/2x mini-Displayport PCI-Express 3.0 Graphic Card

These are the parts that i have put together so far. Mostly i need a computer that can run games such as Call of Duty, BF3, Diablo 3, etc. If there are any parts that don't match or will not make proper use of one another please let me know as this is my first PC and I'm sure there are plenty of mistakes. Thanks for the help.

Nice setup, but i would suggest a more power supply just for safety the corsair Enthusiast Series™ Modular TX850M, and AMD have their new processors that would work better for intense gaming, the FX series is good and a decent price

I agree. Nice build but I would go with an FX processor and use at least DDR3 1866.
