This is my first build, hoping to have it all paid for and assembled by this summer. Any feedback would be appreciated. Ide like to know if everything I am getting it going to work together, if I have undersold/overachieved on certain things and also anything I should change. Budget wise I am about 150$ OVER, so any money saving tips would be nice. thanks

CPU/Processor: AMD FX-6200 Zambezi 3.8GHz (4.1GHz Turbo)

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3 AM3+

RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

Cooling: CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CW-9060007-WW) Water Cooler

Power Supply: CORSAIR CX Series CX750 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready

Hard drive: Western Digital WD Black WD5003AZEX 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s

Optical Drive: ASUS Black SATA DVD-ROM Drive Model DVD-E818A7T/BLK/B/GEN - OEM

Video Card: GIGABYTE GV-R787OC-2GD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX

Case: ZALMAN Z11 Plus HF1 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

As far as future upgrade go I have plenty of room to add additional RAM. I overachieved on the power supply as well as the cooling so upgrading the processor will be easy, and everything is CrossFireX ready so when I upgrade the video card all I will have to is buy another one.

Thanks before hand for the advise.
