is 650$ CAD too much for this rig?

Hey guys, I was introduced to a friend of a friend to help build me a PC that'll max out games like Path of Exile and world of warcraft. I thought it wouldn't be more than 400-500 $ but he quoted 650$. These are the specs :
ok so;

4gb DDR3 1600 corsair vengeance (4gb is enuf for gaming)
asus H81-m K mobo
i3 4130 3.4Ghz
HIS 7770 (comes with a free game too)
500W coolermaster PSU
1tb 7200 rpm seagate baracuda
fractal design core 3000 case
standard liteon dvd burner/reader

I meam I only use my pc cadually. Gfaqs, facebook, ign and youtube and I only really play Path (no real desire for other games besides maybe wow here and there)

What do you guys think? Am I getting scammed for being a PC tech noob or are these pieces what I need to max out those games, and are they fairly priced?
Thanks so much for any help!

Im Canadian so I will ballpark it:
4gb DDR3 1600 corsair vengeance (4gb is enuf for gaming) $20
asus H81-m K mobo $70
i3 4130 3.4Ghz $200
HIS 7770 (comes with a free game too) $110
500W coolermaster PSU $60
1tb 7200 rpm seagate baracuda $40
fractal design core 3000 case $70
standard liteon dvd burner/reader $15

Total: $585.00

Maybe he is adding $50 to put it together for you, so $635+GST.

Well I dont know about hardware prices in Canada but I was just going off that if they are reatively the same as they are in the US and since the Canadian dollar is equal to the US dollar.

The Canadian dollar isn't a real form of currency.
