First build, help needed

http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/HQNbcf Im a bit new to all this. This is my first build, i've gone for what i hope are a decent core, a decent graphics card and enough RAM with the possibility of putting another 8 in later, and then skimped out on other parts when i though i could get away with it. What do people think of this? Is there anything that isn't particularly good quality? I want this computer to last 3 years maybe with a couple of upgrades. Im hoping to get into more first-person shooters and whilst im not a stickler for quality im hoping to get decent fps's at at least high graphics settings. Cheers in advance, Moose.

Also do people know how many fans i would need to keep it cool? Does the case come with enough? (2 intake, 2 exhaust and another one for general air circulation i guess?)

I was hoping for it to be a bit quieter hence the CPU cooler even though i won't be overclocking.

i was hoping for a build under AU$1000 including peripherals, thank you though.

why would you go the intel i3 rather than an AMD core?

I find Intel better, but that's my preference and you can switch it back.

Your case supports usb 3.0 but your motherboard doesnt. Would also go for a smaller case if you plan to keep micro atx motherboard. You can get cheaper ssd's such as samsung evo 840 for like $10 less or more. Think they like $79 at MSY.
