First time building a gaming rig so I want to be sure that my choices are somewhat solid.

The potential build:
CM Storm Stryker white full tower case
Asus crosshair V formula-z motherboard
AMD Fx8350 CPU
EVGA GeForce GTX 760 4gb ram
750w Silencer MK3 modular PSU
Corsair vengeance 16GB (2 x 8gb) 1600mhz ram
Seagate barracuda 2TB 7200rpm HDD

What do you think about this build? All thoughts welcome.

Your budgeting priorities confuse me. Other than performance are there any other parameters you are trying to meet? Why AMD for example at this price range?

Gtx 760 2gb or 4gb its the same.

Better get i5-4670k and a cheaper motherboard like asus z87-A.
2x4 gb memory for playing games
Pick a psu from xfx/seasonic/corsair. 500w+ is enough for single gpu.
