everything looks fine except the psu. it is a piece of junk. it would make a better door stop than a power supply. you want to get psu's made by seasonic, xfx, antec, some of the rosewill's, pc power & cooling, corsair and a few others also you don't need a 750 w unless you plan on going sli also if you have any interest in overclocking i would get a 990fx mobo . here is a build suggestion for you i'm assuming you live in the us but if not let me know where you live and i will adjust it .

Thankyou so much, appreciate the help.

Also, I'm thinking of trying to extend the budget a bit and go with an Intel CPU which also means getting a Intel CPU compatible motherboard? Any suggestions?

Edit: I have just built this computer using the Australian PC Part Picker website http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/2pxsp
I have altered the CPU and changed it to intel, swapped out the motherboard for a more expensive one that is Intel compatible and have also changed the case due to there being no USB 3.0 ports on the front which the new motherboard allocates. Thanks, and again take a look and please make suggestions on how this can improve.

Edit again..: I read that an i5 Intel CPU is plenty for gaming, would anyone recommend swapping an i7 for an i5 - also making it cheaper which is very helpful.
