Going to build a pc for gaming, is this good for its price?

Hi guys!

As the title already said, im going to make my own gaming pc. However im wondering if this build is put together well.

RAM: Corsair Vengeance LP 1600Mhz
Motherboard: GA-970A-UD3
Screen: AOC e2350Swda
Case: Tempest 410
Harddrive: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003
CPU: AMD FX-8350
GPU: Radeon HD 7950
Cpu cooler: Scythe Mugen 3
PSU: Corsair CX750 V3
DVD: Sony AD-7280S-0B 24x
Case Fans: 6x 120mm Inter-Tech R-120-B
Fan Controller: NesteQ NFS2108S FanMax

So these are the components, what i'd like to add is...
- i will overclock whenever the games i play wont reach 50 fps (cpu and gpu) but that's not neccesary right now (maybe in 2-3 years)
- i know the psu only has 40 amps, but im never going to sli/Xfire because 1 vid card every 3 years is (i think) less expensive than sli/Xfire, but is this a good psu to game with?
- i'm getting a 750W psu because the power consumption (with overclocking) is about 585 watt -> 600/750 = 80% so it runs at 80%
- Is the monitor efficient for gaming?
- Is there a better intel solution for the same/a cheaper price? i was thinking about the 3570k but a 1155 socket mobo which is equivalent in features (and power phases) is about 80 euros more expensive than an amd mobo and a cheaper psu wont compensate because it's already a cheap corsair psu. also, the 3570k is 20 euros more expensive here in europe.
- I chose amd because i have a feeling games will be using more cores/threads in a year or 2.

Ill buy this rig today or tomorrow from mindfactory.de

Thanks in advance,
