Double Check My Build? About to pull the trigger on it.

I received some awesome replies yesterday on helping me put my build together and after a little swapping this is what I came up with. I used 2 builds that were suggested to me. I used a few parts from one and a few from the other.

My budget is right around $1000 and I can get this on Newegg right now for like $970ish.

Is this good for a first timer and should I pull the trigger?

Thanks!

    Looks good to me :) You could save a little here or there, but those are solid parts.

    Sweet! I'll go ahead and get them ordered then. Thanks for all your help man!
  3. No problem, it'll be a solid build :) as of right now, I think the 8320 + 760 is the best combination for price to performance. And I'm glad you spent a little more to get a great PSU, those are so often underlooked.

    Enjoy the build!!
