First computer build, need help

Sorry if I posted in the wrong section.

This is my first ever computer build. It will be mainly for gaming and will be playing new games (e.g. Battlefield 4, crysis 3, evolve, the witcher 3, the division etc.). I would prefer to buy all my parts from MSY, so any parts suggestions need to be available from MSY (if it's a really good part then I might consider it). Also I'm already over my budget ($1000, currently all parts cost around $1100 in total), so any parts suggestions need to be less expensive then my current selections (unless I get a huge boost in performance for a few dollars). Basically all I want to know is if my parts fit together and if they're good value for money.

PSU: Antec VP-500P 500W ($60) click here this be enough power?

MOTHERBOARD: ASRock Z87-PRO4 Intel Z87 Socket 1150 Motherboard ($70) click here all my parts fit this motherboard? Is this a good motherboard?

HARDDRIVE: WD 3.5" Blue 500GB WD5000AAKX SATA3 16M 7200rpm HDD ($55) click here this be fine for gaming? (My budget can't afford an SSD)

CPU: Intel core i5 4690 (includes heat sink, paste and fan) (240) click here this a good cpu for gaming? (I'm too scared to overclock) Will the stock heatsink, fan and thermal paste be enough?

GPU: R9 270x($230) Is this a good GPU? What settings would I run Crysis 3 at? What settings will I be able to run future games at (e.g. Evolve, the division, the witcher 3) What will the FPS be like? Which version should I get? click here too scared to overclock)

OPTICAL DRIVE: LiteOn IHAS124-OEM Black Internal SATA Dual Layer DVD RW ($17) click here this optical drive be fine? (I'll probably only use it for installing windows 8)

Static wrist strap ($7)

CASE: Antec GX500B-W Dominator Window USB3.0 Gaming Case without PSU (No PSU) ($60) click here all my components fit in this case? Will the stock fans be enough? (I won't be overclocking) Will my GPU fit? Should I have negative or positive air pressure? (We have a wood fire, so our house is very dusty)

MONITOR: AOC 21.5" E2260swdn ($130) click here this a good monitor?

KEYBOARD AND MOUSE: GIGABYTE Wireless Desktop GK-KM7580 Multimedia (K/B+Mouse) ($22) click here Kingston Hyper X Fury HX318C10FK2/8 8GB (2x4GB) Blue ($93) click here this fit in my motherboard? Will this be enough ram for gaming?

SOFTWARE: 64bit Microsoft MS Windows 8.1 (WN7-00614) OEM ($107) click here Symantec Norton Internet Security 2014 OEM - 1 User ($16) click here this good security?

Any recommendations? Any tips?

Any feedback would be appreciated. So sorry about all the questions. Thanks in advance.

Sorry I copied and pasted this topic from notes on my iPad, and for some reason it's stuffed it up so that there's heaps of mistakes. How do I edit my posts?
