How will this build work, and does it look good so far? - First timer in need of some help.

Hello all! This is the first time I've tried to build a computer, and over the past few days I've put together a list of parts that I would like in my new computer. I want to know what you all think about it, and how it will work in terms of performance, and together/compatibility. How will it perform over all, with different games like League of Legends or Skyrim, or just watching streams on twitch.

I want to know if I'm over doing something, say I have too much in the video card and I can't use it to its full potential because of the other hardware selected. Or the other way around, where I'm limiting the possible performance with something like the motherboard. I was told that the processor works with the motherboard, and I need something like BIOS. (No idea, help with that?)

It's a little stressful for a first timer, and a lot of this stuff is still confusing to me, so an opinion from a professional on this sort of thing would make this experience a lot better. Any opinions are welcome, and I would greatly appreciate any help that you can offer. If you would like to suggest something that can make this build better without adding too much money on the top, say a better hard drive for $30 more dollars, not $100 more, because I feel like I'm pushing my budget already. I hope I'm not too confusing while I'm trying to explain this to you. Thanks so much in advance! I hope I can get this together and get it to work!

Here's the build!

  1. It's a good, well balanced build. However, a 760 requires one 6pin and one 8pin PCIe connector. Try
