  1. Yes that is a good build for the purpose, I see no reason to change individual parts.
  2. You will get more responses in the Systems section

    It is also advisable to read this and maybe edit you post to match this section to make it more easy for users to help you.

    I will move this for you. If you have Win8 problems or questions in the future the Windows 8 section is the place to get help for sure.

    I see no real problem with that build. One thing though if this is for gaming you could save some money by lowering your ram down to 2x4gig. For a gaming build anything over 8gig is really just overkill. Not that it will hurt your performance it is just not needed.

    seconded maybe drop the cpu to a fx 6300 from amd with a cheap asus mobo and go down to 8gb of ram in a dual channel kit and with the saving upgrade to a 7970 if possible this will give you better fps in everything except the most cpu intense games such as hitman and skyrim but both of these should still run at perfectly fine framerates regardless.
