Hey everyone!! I'm new to PC Gaming and stuff but have always loved it! I have finally decided to get a Gaming PC!! I recently customized a FANG III at and was wondering if its any good!

I would like to know what is good, what can be replaced for something better that's maybe cheaper or something, what is fairly useless and not needed, and also I would like to know if my Second Video Card is good or not.

Looks good, for a boost might take the listed hard drive and use as a data drive and invest in a SSD for OS and apps. Also unless you have a real need for hyper-threading, drop the 4770K for the 4670K that's about $100 that can go into a SSD

im wondering why you are choosing two cards of differerent brands?

drop the 650ti and maybe downgrade the 4770k to a 4670k, and change the primary graphics card to something like 7970 and add a quality SSD
I havent checked if the budget holds with those changes
