Making My First build. Rate it?

I'm making a gaming build hopefully some time before the end of August and after doing some research this is what I came up with. I don't want to spend over $1,000 and this is just scraping the surface so I don't want to change anything unless its a serious problem with one of the parts. I want to be able to play games on max settings with some mods. Tell me if you think this will be able to handle that and give it a 1-10 rating. Thanks for reading and helping out a first time builder.

  1. Scythe Mugen 3 will cool better and is cheaper. Everything else looks good.
  2. costs like 20 dollars more but you do get a 7950 and a i5 3570k

    if you dont want to crossfire in the future, you could get a pc power and cooling mk3 500w or 600w psu instead
  3. No reason not to go Ivy at this point, and the H60 doesn't make a whole lot of sense when a strong air fan will give you the same results.
