Help building new computer.

Hey guys. I am planning on building a new computer from (almost) scratch and I was wondering if you could give me feedback on the parts I have chosen.

Processor-
AMD FX-8120 ($150)
or
AMD FX-8350 ($190)


Video card-
ZOTAC ZT-50303-10M GeForce GTX 560 Ti OC ($170)


PSU-
OEM 700W Power Supply - ATX, 115/230V ($35)
or
OEM 600W Power Supply - ATX, 115/230V ($27)


MB-
MSI 970A-G46 AMD 9 Series Motherboard ($80)


Case-
Ultra XBlaster Mid-Tower V2 Case ($30)


RAM-
Crucial Ballistix 8GB (2x 4GB), PC3-12800, DDR3-1600MHz ($45)

Total comes to around $500-$600 and I do not plan on exceeding that price range.
Any help or tips would be appreciated as soon as possible. Thanks!

    600$ and got good hardware enjoy
  8. Ok, one more thing I forgot to mention. I might want to add another video card and go SLI because I intend to use it mostly for gaming. Can you change some things up for that within the same price range? And suitable for gaming as well?
  9. And I don't like buying from Newegg just cause the shipping is a lot more to where I live. That's why I was looking from TigerDirect
  10. not really newegg has a flaterate. also in ur price range u cannot afford a decent nvidia card, with a sli capable motherboard, it simply isnt in ur budget, so this is the best u can get for now :) and crossfire another 7870 down the road
