First Budget Gaming Build

Alright, so i've been working on this pc for a while mainly bc I used most of my paychecks on the parts at different times and it took about a month and a half to get all these parts ordered (I'm still a teen and working a min. wage job) I ordered the last part today which was the Graphics card, the Sapphire R9 270x. I'm wanting to know if this build will get the job done gaming wise and how will it handle most of today's demanding titles like CoD Ghosts, Battlefield 4 and Battlefield Hardline Beta :P , DayZ, Sniper Elite 3 ( I know its not out yet but i got a free code from the sapphire purchase -^). Alright so i'm wanting to hear other peoples thoughts and no hate please. thank you (:

Since you already ordered everything I don't know how much I can help, but it should be able to play games pretty well at 1080p. Not Ultra in BF4, but at least High.

I would use just the Team Dark Series RAM, not that RAM plus the Kingston together. Mixing up RAM kits can lead to all sorts of problems.
