670 Dollar Gaming Pc Build

I just chose the parts to build my gaming pc. I'm pretty an proud of it, and I want to see if there is a better option to the price. I'm looking for a pc with at least 1tb, a 4gb graphics card, and something that will beat mine in competition. I'm not about to release the specs yet, because I don't want you guys to just copy mine and modify it. I do need you to find the items on tigerdirect.com, and the items can be refurbed, but cannot be scratch and dent, or anything worse. The components must have a greater than 3 star rating. Keep in mind, this is not a question, but i'm just bored and wanted to see if there is a better alternative to this build. Take this as a competition.

    TOO MUCH? Go to microcenter.com and get one of their MOBO CPU combos (MSI and fx 6300) for 140, saving you 57 dollars.

    TOTAL AFTER COMBO - 656 - 713

    TOTAL after all discounts -
    $666.00
    Probably one of the most beast builds as of right now. BTW there is barely any difference between r9 280 and 280x (overclock a bit) and are better than gtx 760 and 770 in performance

    Some say that 770 performs better, but to my experience, r9 280/x performs better at most games.
