Wait a minute, that build is not worth it. It has a very bad processor and not a very good graphics card. For that budget you can build a beast Gaming PC with i5 4570 and a Nvidia 760 which is comparable to the 7950 and like 2.5 times more powerful than the card you selected. So, better put your money on this build as it is much much better than the one you selected.

Here is the beast :

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

CPU: Intel Core i5-4570 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor ($159.99 @ Microcenter)
Motherboard: MSI B85M-P33 Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($64.24 @ Amazon)
Memory: Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($54.99 @ NCIX US)
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($62.98 @ Outlet PC)
Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card ($254.98 @ SuperBiiz)
Case: NZXT Gamma Classic (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($24.99 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: Corsair CX 600W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($54.99 @ Microcenter)
Total: $677.16
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

With Amazon, the budget goes a bit high, but it is still acceptable since This build is very powerful. So blindly go for that and yeah, do not forget to select it as the best answer if it helped :)
