So I have decided to build my first PC, I am semi-new to it. I have assisted in build or 2 but never one of my own and I am looking for some info to see if everything is in order. I am intending to try and stay under the $600 mark but if need be I will put extra in.
This PC is for the most part intended for gaming and the goal is to have it running modern games at high settings with 60+ FPS without going too extreme on the cost.

The current parts I am most likely going to go with:

I have all of the other bits and pieces necessary already (cords, DVD Drive, Monitor).
I already have a Sandisk SDSSDX-240G-G25 for my main storage/boot up drive. In the future I will add a 500GB or 1TB HDD for extra space, I also already have the OS I am going to install.

So let me know what you think and please point out any faults and try to be brutally honest with what I can improve on.

EDIT:
-Updated Power Supply: Corsair Builder 500W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply - $40
-Updated CPU: AMD FX-4300 3.8GHz Quad-Core Processor + $5
-Updated GPU: Zotac GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB Video Card + $5

+ If I decide to do some overclocking (which I most likely will within the year) will this case be suitable for keeping it repetitively cool? If not please suggest a better case that isn't too expensive, or if I should add a different CPU Cooler.

Good coice; don't need that extra wattage for this build. Maybe use the extra $$ for Windows
