i am on a buget around $1000 to $1100 this is what i have so farhttp://
i plan to get a gtx 770 but for now i will use the igpu for light gaming thats why theres no gpu listed.
but with that in mind the amd fx-8350 has a better igpu and is a little cheeper with slightly lower performence. so should i get the amd or the intel? i plan on playing games like skyrim heavily modded and battlefield 4. are the parts i picked good? and i dont have all the money at the moment witch is why i am not getting the gpu but i want to get the computer because even without the gpu its still better then the one i am using. and sorry is if i am doing this wrong i dont use fourms often or atleast post in them.

Best solution

Get 2x4GB instead unless you want to have 16GB later.
Get a western digital HDD instead of seagate. Seagate have a higher failure rate.
750w is overkill unless you will be using crossfire/SLI in the future.

the fx 8350 doesn't have a IGP.
Else it looks fine.
Choose whatever your budget allows.
The i5-4670k will have higher performance than the 8350 in most things.

if you want to SLI in the future you would need atleast 750w.
The CPU cooler is good, as should be able to handle OC'ing to 4.3GHz+
