Could not find the case in the list, but it's a Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-01 Mid Tower Gaming Case CC-9011050-WW. I want to know if this is a good enough gaming pc to play modern games at 1080p 60fps. Sorry, not good at this.

That video card isnt worth $316 You can get an R9 290 that is cheaper or the new GTX 970 for a little more both of which are better than the GTX 760.

Go for a AMD Radeon r9 280/280X/290 instead of that card. Not worth it. Also are you aware that your missing a case??? If it were me I'd get a AMD FX-6300 cpu. With some of the money that I saved from CPU get a better motherboard for AM3+. If you want to save more money get one of the graphics cards I suggested or get a GTX 970 for a little more with the money youve saved. Also that PSU isn't very good.I recommend this Antec High Current Gamer 620w Modular
