Hello everyone I'm looking to build a new pc and need some advice on the build that I have chosen. I've done a lot of research but I figured I would check and ask advice from the forums before I went and bought anything. Any advice or revisions are welcome. Thank You.

your build is actually really good for first build, good job.

if you want you can get a cheaper (still good) motherboard and maybe get a lesser case (but that case is great btw) you can upgrade your CPU

That is a good motherboard I would really not recommend getting cheaper one unless you can find that board for a cheaper price. You could save some money by going with a 7850 instead of a 7870 but I have not used any mid range cards so I do not know how much of a performance loss you would have and even at that you would only save about $30 dollars so weather it would be worth would be up to you.

Over all you have a good setup already I would not really change anything. You have a rig that you will be happy with and that is the most important part of building a rig.
