Answer
Yes it should be quite competent for those, and other, modern games. The 4690 is quite fast, as is the GTX 970, and the hard-drive is large enough to install larger modern games (some modern games can be upwards of 50GB installs). The PSU also looks like a solid choice.

Don't forget the operating system, and any peripherals you may need (e.g. DVD drive, keyboard, etc).
