Hello, I am very new to PC building, this will be my first one and I am looking to get advice on the parts I picked. Mainly I want to know if there is something wrong or something better for its price. Feel free to point anything out that you notice may be odd or altogether incorrect and also just give me your opinion. I will say that I had trouble deciding on how to choose a motherboard, power supply, and optical drive.

Why Are You Upgrading: My last desktop was a regular store bought one which I eventually upgraded for my gaming needs but unfortunately my gpu stopped working properly and now overheats after around half an hour of gameplay. The system is old overall so I thought it was time for a new pc.
Pretty much this. Better with an SSD. Bought a lot of things on sale which do not affect performance. Switched the 670 for the 7950 which is pretty almost as better as the 670 because of the drivers update but cheaper by $100. The 7950 is better with overclocks though.
