I made this list on PCPartPicker, bear in mind that I will decide my case later and I already have a fair amount of spare ram lying around, so It's not too much of a problem. Anyone's insights would be much appreciated.

I'm new to building PCs, also, leave suggestions of anything that could be better, my budget's about $1300.
Sorry about the repost, I don't know how to remove posts.

Yes, It's for gaming. I thought I'd put it in the gaming section.

In the case you´re thinking about overclocking the CPU, then think about a 600W PSU (Antec, Corsair, Seasonic).

Ok, thanks. About the CPU, I was told that I would be better off with in i5 processor, because of MSI's compatibility issues. Would that be a good idea? Any other processors around the same price range, which are better?

Just in case I can't get the 7970, what would be a good choice?
