Power Supply : 750 Watt With Power Cable Supplied (corsair)
Motherboard : Asus M5A78L-M USB3
Hard Drive : 1tb Sata Hard Drive
Gtx 760 gpu (2gb)
16gb DDR3 1600mhz Corsair Vengeance Memory

It is definitely not bad. I would prefer to go with Intel cpu's, but that's
just my preference. IMO its best to put your money towards CPU/MOBO and a quality case.
You can upgrade the rest at a later time. Those are more or less the parts that are set in stone.

16GB of RAM is overkill for just about anything, particularly if this is meant to be a mostly gaming machine. Take some of that money and put it towards a SSD, you will be kicking yourself if you build a system without one.

Thanks for your advice , sadly this machine is not being built by me. I am a computer novice and don't want to build one my self. This is the only computer I could find that wasn't a 100% rip off. Yes I do know I can build a pc myself which is just as good for less ; this is a valid point but I just don't have the time or capability to do that. All I care about is not being called a fag by a 9 year old child whilst playing bf3 ...
