So in a few days I'm ordering my components for my first build. So I just need someone to make sure they're good. CPU: Intel I5-3570k CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Mobo: Asus P8Z77-V LK RAM: 8 GB of Corsair Vengence DDR3-1600 SSD: 120 GB Kingston SSDNow V300 Series Hard Drive: 2 TB Seagate Barracuda GPU: EVGA GTX 760 with 2 GB of ram clocked at 1.07 Ghz Case: Fractal Design Define R4 PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA NEX750B 750W (Overkill? Yes, but I want room to get another GPU and overclock in the future. Plus, it was one of the cheapest I could find at around 650W from a reliable brand.) All of this comes in at $963.98 w/o thermal paste, optical drive, or Windows 8.

I recommend getting an i5 4670k just because of the socket LGA 1150 motherboard so you can update your Cpu in a year or two (I know it quick, I update my main rig every two years and use the old parts in my home server or in my little brothers machine). If you sacrifice the SSD you can easily pick up an r9 280x. It is a much better card. The define r4 is a great case, I use it myself. Might want to look at the windowed version as it is super sexy. 2tb is sooooo overkill. If you are set on getting 2 tb, get 2 1tb hard drives and run them in RAID.

Meant to say the window version because of all the builds I've seen it in have been sexy.
