Looking into buying this PC and just wanting a few opinions.
I'm thinking of upgrading the PSU and the graphics card on this current build (link below)
Any input is appreciated :)

It's a decent system. You'll want to switch that 3770k for a 3570k and the 7850 for a 7870. Also get a name brand PSU, not some shady one.
