Smile New computer build Idea. Help please :D

Ok after more research i have found this:

Processor (CPU): Phenom II X4 840, 77.81
Graphics (GPU): 1GB XFX HD6670, 59.59
Motherboard: MSI 870-G45, 50.24
Memory (RAM): 4GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3 1600MHz, 22.08
Storage (HDD): Samsung HD502HJ 500GB 7200RPM (or equivalent), 31.43
Power Supply (PSU): Corsair CX430W, 36.52
DVD-Drive: Any DVD-RW drive, 13
Case: 30 allowance
Which when put through google converter comes to $508.00

I may switch out that video card for a 6770 instead of the 6670

I want to spend anywhere from 500-600 dollars on the Core system. I don't need Mouse, OS, Keyboard, Monitor, and im fine with onboard sound

So my questions are is this a sound build that should be able to max out GW2 on say 1280x1024 res, and run modern games like Skyrim or Kingdom of amalur. Also is there any parts that should be replaced with something else or do i need any additional fans. Anything and everything would be helpful and i thank you for your help

I have the 6670 video card although my system lacks in the processor department I still get decent settings in most modern games I play games at 1440x900 so you should be fine for games

This advice is so 1999.

Buy the right case and you won't need to add extra fans. Ideally, a case with 2 or 3 120mm fans will move enough air without needing to resort to exotic cooling solutions. Even the el cheapo cases around the $25-30 mark have these fans now.
