Hi, I've been thinking about making my own computer for about a month now, and I think I've finally got the parts down for what I want.
Please excuse me if I have something stupid as it's the first time around for me.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/xFx8 - (My friend is providing windows 7 for me.)

Is my build ideal?

I'm trying to build a decent gaming rig that can run some of the newer games out there at around high settings while still maintaining a decent fps rate.

My budget is anywhere around $800, but tbh I'd like to go on on the low side of that range.

I'm open to all suggestions, so if I can improve in any area/ save money in any area without altering the performance by much, please let me know.

Ty for all feedback in advance! :D

Looks great to me.
Would swap the Ripjaws to a Sniper or Ares for low profile, but that's just me.

Also, get the 1.5tb Seagate, it's the same price for some reason.
