I am new to building custom gaming rigs. I've been looking around for pc components reviews and prices and tried my best into putting them toghether into 1 (balanced i think....) build.

The build: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/skunk_deva/saved/1TVh

I would like to know what could i improve staying withing the budget, or where could i chop off some bucks and invest them elsewhere. much appreciated.

budget: <1000$
