Default New computer build

Hey all I'm new to the forum and I'm building a new computer for kind of cheap my build so far is Cooler Master HAF 912
AMD FX-4100 3.6GHz
AMD Motherboard - ASUS M5A78L-M LX Plus
Overclock Processor up to 10% Memory
1TB 7200 RPM Hard
Nvidia Geforce GTX 760 2GB
standard 600 Watt
Windows 8
8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz
And my total is under 900 I was just wondering how I could make my build better

I'm guessing this is a pre-built? If so, you might want to consider building yourself.
So far the rig itself is decent, but I'd change that 4100 to an i3 3220 and a cheap B75 board. Retail prices for the combo should be relatively the same but the i3 3220 will be better for games.

Next thing I'd look at is the PSU. Make sure it's a quality brand and not some no name junk.

With this rig so far do you think I could run newer games (ie: battlefield 3,far cry 3) and next gen as well on medium to high settings

You should be able to play everything on high, granted the 4100 doesn't hold you back any. The 760 is a very good card.

The 6300 is literally the same price as the 6100 on Newegg.ca. If you're dead set on AMD, at least get that.

The CX600 is a decent PSU.
