Default Building my first PC! Could use some tips, recomendations etc

My PC will be used mainly for gaming..I'll also be just doing internet browsing with it.
Budget I don't really want to go over $1300..I'd say 1350 would be Max. Of course any areas to lower cost is always a good thing!
Live in Canada
First time builder so I probably won't be over clocking (I know I can't with this set up anyways)
I would just like it to be able to play games for the next few years..I don't need to play them on ultra high settings. I'd be happy with good fps on med-high graphics.

I'm new this this and have spent a lot of time reading and doing research. I could use a look over what I have for any advice or recommendations (nothing is set in stone, and I'm open to changing any parts)

CPU-Intel Core i5-3470 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor (BX80637i53470) - PCPartPicker Canada
Motherboard- ASRock Z77 Pro3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard (Z77 Pro3) - PCPartPicker Canada
Memory- Corsair 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (CMV8GX3M2A1600C11) - PCPartPicker Canada
Storage- Seagate Momentus 5400.6 320GB 2.5" 5400RPM Internal Hard Drive (ST9320325AS) - PCPartPicker Canada
-Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB 2.5" Solid State Disk (SH103S3/120G) - PCPartPicker Canada
GPU- Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Card (11196-02-40G) - PCPartPicker Canada
Case- Corsair 200R ATX Mid Tower Case (200R) - PCPartPicker Canada
PSU- Rosewill Green 630W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply (RG630-S12) - PCPartPicker Canada
Monitor- Asus VS239H-P 23.0" Monitor (VS239H-P) - PCPartPicker Canada
Keyboard- Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Wired Gaming Keyboard (JQD-00001) - PCPartPicker Canada

Just getting a basic optical drive, and I have for the build I put Windows 7...but I may get 8 need to do more research in this area.

Full build here: Intel Core i5-3470, Sapphire Radeon HD 7950, Corsair 200R - System Build - PCPartPicker Canada
