I'm building my first gaming pc and I would like to get your input. This is what I'm thinking about getting. Should I keep this build or is there anything I should change?

My recommendations would be to change the 9320 to an 8350 and to upgrade from the 7870 to a R9 270X as it is a re-branded 7870 but with increased performance
