Hey guys I am finally doing my first build. Now this is a budget gaming computer for my brother and I'm pretty sure I have it down but I would like to double check to make sure it is done all right and the parts are good and they will work with each other. I tried keeping the price around $650 and the games are mostly going to be fps that are probably not going to be on max settings.

Ok here are the components: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1deYA

I will appreciate all constructive feedback

I would save yourself some money by going with a 500GB HDD and cheaper case, then upgrade to 8GB RAM and a 7870 (7870 XT preferably).

Here is a build I'd suggest, its $661 but well worth the slight extra money: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1dfDA

Also this is assuming you don't need/want OS, optical disc drive, keyboard, mouse, and monitor.

Yeah I have been trying to tell him the case isn't right for this build and I think swapping the ssd for the hdd is a good call.
Yeah this is just for the tower.
