Can my budget build do the job?

http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/Empiral/saved/Npprxr I need this build mostly for school work and some light gaming. I want to make sure whether this computer can play League of Legends on high-ultra settings and possibly Rome 2 Total War on medium settings. Thanks for your opinions!

Ah yeah the 270X is a much better choice than the R9 270 I picked out!

What's your budget? I would suggest upgrading your ram to 2 4gb sticks and maybe a 2gb gfx card instead of a 1gb to be on the safe side.

My budget would be 550ish without peripherals.
