Hey, this is my first build. I have research for about a month and this is what I have come up with. Please let me know what changes you would make and why. Also, don't suggest anything to high in price since this system is already at the top of my budget. Just looking to see if I could make a wiser choice for the same money.

Generally I'm bias towards intel builds, but this one seems ok
-PSU should be from a better brand like Corsair, Antec, Seasonic, XFX
-Motherboard only has one PCIe x16 slot, and another 4x (4x is useless for GFX) So you wont be able to run dual card setups

Just the word corsair beside the word PSU is good sign. If youre not planning to go dual card, ever, then youre all set
