Default First gaming PC build, Need Help!

Okay, so I'm new to the whole PC gaming and I've been doing a lot of research on it and I was looking at the different parts on TigerDirect and I came across this deal:
Asus 970 AM3+ motherboard
AMD FX 4300 Quad Core 3.8GHz processor
2x Adata Premier SRS 4GBs memory modules
EVGA GTX650 Video Card
Samsung DVDRW
HEC 485W PSU
Thermaltake V3 Blk Edt. Case

for 379.99 USD
I don't know if it's good enough to run what I want out of my PC, which is just to be able to play DayZ and Minecraft with some friends. Any help or suggestions would be great. Thanks in advance!

My suggestion would be to get this moved to general hardware and fill out the sticky information.
