Please Help. Will This Work?

This is my first PC build so I have no idea what i'm doing.

I'm building this primarily for gaming and streaming. I've been researching a bit and I think this should work. I'm really trying to run Skyrim and Far Cry 3, but I'd like to stay as far ahead of the curve as I can so far as the future of next-gen gaming goes. I wanted to keep this under $800 so I left out the optical disk drive in place of an external one I already have. I would love some feedback if anyone has any ideas or suggestions.
