This is going to be my first pc and I have been researching different things about parts for a while now and I just wanted to get a few opinions on the parts I chose and if there are any ways I can make the build cheaper. This computer is going to be used mainly for gaming with school use following. I plan to keep a budget of about $900 or less while it currently is over that. Thanks for any responses.

EDIT 1: I have Changed the build so now It has a better Psu and I changed out most of the other parts in order to cut down on the price a little. I also decided that I wanted it to be a micro atx so i went with that. By changing the parts I was able to get it down to under $900. This does not include a OS because I am going to have my friend show me how to use Ubuntu because I have heard good things about it and it can run the games that I want on steam.

Well it's currently over budget, but would still suggest a better PSU, the CX series is Corsairs entry level and not really made to run higher end components like your CPU and GPU, wouldn't trust it

Thanks for the response, I'm going to look into adding a better power supply to the part list latter once I get some time. For now I may leave the price of the build at what it is as I am not 100% sure on what my budget will be.
