After making a post last night I got some feedback and made another configuration with the AMD FX-8350. Now id like to point out again once more, my max price is $2,500. I want to also point out that im not trying to cut corners on parts, Im choosing pre-built because I not very smart at build these computers. I know how to maintain water cooling and know what my system is. Pretty much im asking if I should keep the FX-8350 or go back with the i7-8320? With the FX-8350 I was able to choose a nice motherboard around the same price of ~$2,200. Thats the price im comfortable with. I was also able to put in a 120gb SSD with getting the FX-8350. Please give constructive criticism.

One thing is for sure though, I cannot build my own. I dont know anyone who can, and company's around where I live seem shady and dont feel comfortable having them build me one.

Woudn't go for the AMD CPU or the GPU you have chosen

Try this - http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/system/Zeus_Thunder_1500

It's $300 more than your current build - just let me know if that's going to break the bank and I can tone down a thing or two.

By the way, are you planning to overclock this system yourself? (I'm assuming you are) - if not there is no point in investing in such a monster water-cooling system, the build I put together comes with a free 20% OC - but tbh, if you know what your doing you could push the i7-3770k to not far off it's max of 5GHz

Hope this helps a little :) 

Oh, btw, when it comes to gaming, the GPU is far more important than the CPU - Although you need to watch for bottlenecking - the cards in your original build, although fine cards, for you budget there probably a tad underpowered :)
