Hi guys, this is my first gaming pc build, I have no experience, and in the past I have just bought pre-built computers(Dell inspiron 580). My budge is $700-750 so i decide to go with AMD since its less pricey than intel.
*My MAIN question is do you think the parts i chose are compatible and do you think i chose the right power supply?And should i overclock the GPU (how much).
Your answers and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I would go for a 7870 at the moment. You can get them at a great price, and spend the money you save elsewhere.

I would pick a different PSU. XFX Pro 650 for example would be better. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1650snlb...
Antec, Corsair, Seasonic & XFX generally for best quality.
