  1. Well....no. Some of your parts are pretty much junk, such as the mobo, psu, and case. Also, the green series isn't the best to use as a main drive for a hard drive. If you give us a budget, we can put a couple different builds together for you.

    Also, 16 GB of RAM is completely overkill. 8 GB is more than enough for gaming.

    Good CPU, GPU, and CD drive though.
  2. I think this is all from newegg.
    Ditch the apevia psu, it's rubbish, if you want a cheap psu, get the corsair CX500 :
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027
    39.99$ after mir.
    If you don't need a h77 board, get the asrock b75 : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157335
    or the h77 one : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157303
    You don't need 16GB of ram, get 8GB : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220705
    42$ after promo code.
    With the savings, i'd get the 7870 tahiti le : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131484&Tpk=7870%20le
    If you want a cheap case : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133094
    It's pretty decent, i take that one over the apevia.
    But i recommend this case : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119233&Tpk=haf%20912
  3. I have about a 700 to 800 dollar budget.
  4. This is the upper end of your budget, but you get an awesome build out of it.
