Hey guys, I just have a quick questions. I recently bought a new computer (I was on a budget), and I was wondering what you guys think. I bought:

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Video Card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Ok, now my question is, how balanced/unbalanced is my computer? I wanna use this for games and web surfing. I have 16gb of RAM (I bought one and mobo came with another). I know 16gb is a bit overkill, but I don't mind. :D  The highest game i'll be playing is ARMA II/DayZ. Im thinking that the video card should be upgraded so it will be more balanced. What you guys think? Thanks for your opinions and help!

P.S. I have Windows 7 x64 Home Premium :sol:

you can get a upgrade if you want. a good one that should get you high settings is the 7770 for 100 bucks.

fx was bad but still performs well. adding a better video card just makes it better

It's an ok build. If you wouldn't have wasted $40 on ram, you could have gotten a 7770.
