I posted this previously on the site in another section, but i would like to get many different opinions before I buy. How does this look? Like i said in a previous post I don't need anything to hardcore. I just want to run games smoothly.Does this look good? I may have a case that i can get from a friend but if not I was looking at the NZXT Tempest 210. Let me know if I'm paying to much or feel free to change anything. Again I'm very new and kinda clueless. Thanks for any help!

It would be helpful if you included a budget so that we can change things according to the amount of money you are going to spend.

I would replace the Corsair Builder PSU with either an XFX or SeaSonic. Reason being, I almost went with the same PSU until i posted on Tom's and was told that i really could do better with SeaSonic

Ok then one thing I would recommend is going for a EVGA GTX 760 ($250ish). Plus, if you want to upgrade later, you can just get another one and SLI them for even more performance than a GTX Titan ($1000).
