Gaming Pc Build, please review

I have roughly a $1700 budget give or take. This is the build I have come up with. I attempted to use pcpartpicker but a couple of the things I wanted were not listed on there. I’m primarily going to use this computer for gaming. I know 16gb of Ram is a bit much, however it may be useful in the future or if I decide to start steaming or uploading videos to Youtube. Please let me know your thoughts or if you think a different part would be better off. I have * the parts that were not on pcpartpicker, if you know any sites that have them cheaper than newegg I would appreciate the heads up! Looking to buy within the next week and live in Illinois in the United States

  1. Not bad...not bad at all.But,you may want to decrease your budget a little bit.
  2. do you think that graphics card is overkill? and what about the memory? I primarily play MMO's, Mobas, and the like. I usually play FPS games like crysis/cod/battlefield on my PS3.
