If its for gaming, No.

Way too much CPY/ motherboard/ PSU and no where near enough GPU

Get an fx-6300 and a $70 motherboard. Get a 500w PSU.

Used saved money for a better GPU (7870/gtx660). It will be much better for gaming.

The 7770 will only game at medium settings.

What will be the main use of this system?

It will be used for gaming and just everyday use, nothing too intense with that budget.

For gaming you would probably want atleast a 7800 series card like a 7850 or 7870.
