$1000 Everything Build. Is this good enough for the games I want to play?

this is my build: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Jercacia/saved/MLZqqs

The games I'm aiming to play are Battlefield 4, Minecraft, CS:GO and some other indie Steam games. I know it'll run Minecraft because my brother's A8-5500 APU plays it 60+ frames. When I say that it's an "Everything" build I mean that it has all of the things I need to start playing immediately, including the monitor, OS and peripherals.

Note- I will probably have the money for this before summer, so would any of these components still even be relevant then?

Feedback is appreciated.

I got rid of that $100 for Steam Games. Why? Because you need a GPU that can play, and a computer that can upgrade easily. Which is what I have here. It is something that will allow you to put future parts without having to change anything (maybe the motherboard in a near future). Hope this helps. Sorry for taking the $100 away. I just felt that you were limiting your self just to get lots of games.

Thank you for replying! It's okay that you got rid of the $100 of Steam games, I mean that's just another 100 bucks that I can earn later. :)
