First time building a gaming PC! Help / recommendations wanted!

Hello, I am building my first PC for gaming, but I'm not to sure if I'll be getting what I expect, being this my first time. I plan to play some FPS games like Battlefield, Titanfall, etc., on at least Med+ settings with high FPS, and simpler games such as Minecraft of Max settings at high FPS. I also need some help deciding on storage for the PC, as well as possibly, if recommended, case fans. I would like to keep this build below $1500 (including peripherals and the monitor), so any suggestions would be great. Thanks in advance!

  • Rosewill RD450-2-SB: The OEM is Solytech, consider alternatives.
  • G.Skill F3-2400C11D-8GXM: Minimal benefits using DDR3-2400 considering that the 4670K's official memory support tops out at DDR3-1600. Days of overclocking via the memory as primary method has long passed, so even OC'ers rarely bother with such.
