Evaluate My Projected 1st Build

My projected build -http://pcpartpicker.com/p/fF3d

Looking to build a budget gaming/document work rig on a firm $500-$600 budget. I really only place Total War and Sim City type games. Will this set-up be good for future upgrades? I am a noob so I welcome any suggestions.

  7. Quick question on the 7770...I thought benchmark tests showed that the 560 performed better than the 7770.

    Yeah but those are old test's and they've improved the drivers very well for the 7770 But I'm not to sure that the 7770 beta's them
  9. The 12.7 and 12.8 drivers are great. They really improved performance.
