Solved

is there something wrong with my build? compatibility issue?

1st off sorry if i posted this on the wrong section,not sure w/c one to choose on the hardware section.

Intel® Pentium® Processor G3260 (3M Cache, 3.30 GHz)
GIGABYTE GA-H81M-DS2 (REV 1.0) motherboard Intel® H81 | LGA 1150
GSKILL RIPJAWS 8GB (F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL) memory 4GB X 2 | 1600MHz | DDR3
WESTERN DIGITAL 1TB BLUE 3.5" SATA (WD10EZEX) hard drive
EVGA GEFORCE GTX 750 TI SC 2GB DDR5 128BIT
corsair vs 550

i need suggestion on this if there is something wrong with the parts i picked.
1) compatibility issue?
2) bottle neck?
3) bad parts?
Like the mobo, I read somewhere that GIGABYTE GA-H81M-DS2 was doa when they received it.if i recall right it was at pcpartpicker or newegg.
4) any suggestion on a better gpu?

my total budget would be $450 for this build. didn't include the casing since i already have one and also i already have the psu(corsair vs550), so $450 for the rest of the remaining parts.
this build will mostly be used for online games. i cant go amd because amd graphics is having issues with the game im playing and also planning on playing upcoming games. my target fps would be is 30+. 40+ better:D
still not certain if i would still need an i3-4170 since its just mostly for online games.
would go for the g3258 but the pc part shops here doesnt have any:(

thank you for reading this:)
