First Gaming PC! Advice Needed!

I have decided to make a progressive switch to PC!
I am not familiar with many technical specs at the moment, but for a starter build with my given budget I have chosen these products:
AMD - FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor
MSI - 990FXA-GAMING ATX AM3+/AM3 Motherboard
Patriot - Viper 3 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
EVGA - GeForce GTX 1050 2GB SC GAMING Video Card

My exact concern is how well will I fend off against modern triple A games? Will I be able to obtain 1080 at 60 fps on such games as Battlefield and Skyrim?

As noted above.

Check out the builds at PC Master Race. You'll get into gaming PCs that have been built by thousands of others and are very capable.

However, a 1050 GPU while a very very very nice GPU may have to reduce settings to hit 60 FPS in a lot of games. SO YES, it's a fine card. Check out reviews on the 1050 to see what I'm saying here. At least bump the 1050 to the 4GB model if not a model or two higher.

Don't go with FX

FX is getting phase-out. Stay away with it. Better get iseries intel or the new ryzen.
