Okay so I have been looking for a good computer, so far I have these specs:
Case: Xion Predator 970 Gaming Series Mid Tower Case w/ 2 External Removable HDD Bays

CPU: AMD FX-8350 4.00 GHz Eight-Core AM3+ CPU 8MB L2 Cache & Turbo Core Technology

Venom Boost Fast And Efficient Factory Overclocking: Extreme OC (Extreme Overclock 20% or more)

Cooling Fan: Asetek 510LC Liquid Cooling System 120MM Radiator & Fan (Enhanced Cooling Performance + Extreme Silent at 20dBA) (Dual Standard 120MM Fans (Push-Pull))

Coolant for Cyberpower Xtreme Hydro Water Cooling Kits: Standard Coolant

Motherboard: [CrossFireX] GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 AMD 970 Chipset Socket AM3+ ATX Mainboard w/ Touch Bios, Ultra Durable 2, On/Off Charge, 7.1 Audio, GbLAN, USB3.0, SATA-III RAID, 2 Gen2 PCIe X16, 3 PCIe X1 & 2 PCI

Memory: 16GB (4GBx4) DDR3/1866MHz Dual Channel Memory (Corsair XMS)

Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB 16X PCIe Video Card (EVGA Superclocked)

Power Supply Upgrade: 700 Watts - Standard Power Supply - SLI/CrossFireX Ready

Hard Drive: 2TB (2TBx1) SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 64MB Cache 7200RPM HDD (Single Drive)

I need to be able to play games like league of legends and Starcraft on high with steady frames(60-100).
Is this good?
I am willing to change the GPU to something a little more if needed.

Everything looks good IMO.
I would get a 990 motherboard instead though.

I hope your going to play other games than jut those! hahaha.... but i would also recommend getting a 990 motherboard. You'll be able to run pretty much any game you want to play on high graphics

650ti is only an entry level gaming GPU, I doubt it will be able to handle SC2 on highest at 1080p. I'd suggest getting 660, it's about $100 more but it'll be worth it.

He doesn't need a 990 board unless he plans to SLi however he should get a better quality board if he plans on long term stable OC's the GA-970A-UD3 would suffice

Also I agree with antizig get a 660 or better you aren't going to run much on high at 1080p with a 650ti

i agree with the 660ti (or go for the ati hd7870 for a bit less)

if your not going to use sli in future then your PSU is overkill also, 550W is all your need, im using a 500W modular with my 7870 and intel 3450 cpu

if you get the 990 board get the better PSU but if your board doesnt support sli then ur PSU doesnt need to either (cut down on cables in the case!¬!)
