$700 Gaming Pc

I just bought brand new parts today for my first gaming pc and I currently reside in Canada. My budget was about 700 dollars and I'm having second thoughts on the parts I bought and I'm too scared to open the parts because I might return them. I also wanted to hopefully save a few more bucks.

Parts not needed: HDD, mouse, monitor
Overclocking: Maybe
SLI or Crossfire: Maybe

CPU: Core i3 2100 for $119.99

GPU: Gigabyte windforce 6870 for $159.99 after $30 MIR

PSU: OCZ ZT series 650W for $55.99 after 20$ MIR

Mobo and ram combo: Patriot G2 Series Division 2x4GB and a Gigabyte Z68MA all for $139.99 after $10 MIR

Case: Corsair Carbide Series 500r for $117.99

*All these parts come from ncix.ca

Total : $761.61
Total after MIR: $701.61

I don't know if I should spend a little less on some parts and make other parts better. I'm really confused and need some advice. Thanks!

  1. Excellent choice on the case, video card, and CPU, motherboard and PSU are decent but should get the job done, and I'm not the biggest fan of Patriot RAM, but they should do fine.

    At your budget I would have spent less on the case and more on the cpu and/or gpu. something like this http://ncix.com/products/?sku=55583&vpn=RC-912-KKN1&manufacture=COOLERMASTER and getting a 560 ti or a i5-2400 instead . It's more about preference and you build is solid overall.
