Just based on hardware without knowing your budget...8.5/10

I am no a fan of having so many hard drives, I would have a SSD instead of one of the 500s at least, and maybe a single 1.5 instead of the 500 + 1T.

Video cards - I would have probably went with a single fatter card instead of 2x smaller ones. Lower FPS, but it avoids a whole lot of potential problems.

PSU - Too large for this setup, imho. I would have went with an XFX 850w instead.

RAM - AMD is kinda new and untested, I wouldn't have wanted to be the guinea pig with it. Better to buy RAM from makers with a long and successful track record and let other people be AMDs test victims.

Other - Good enough for the budget range.

Just to clarify, this is already built but i'm looking for new upgrades, which will most likely be a SSD, and identifying possible bottlenecks

As for the AMD branded ram I'm quite happy with it, its actually manufactured by Patriot
