Hey man nice build, I changed 2 things, and if you can do this then I'd say this. It's still under 600$ but it will pay off in the long run :) 2x4 hyper X for dual channel better then 1x8gb. As for the graphics card your pic is perfect but at the price right now I'd get the 6gb version. As you will be happyier in the long run the 3gb of ram will make you upgrade eventually. If you really can't spare the extra bit your fine. But if you can spare the little bit check out what I put in for yah. http://pcpartpicker.com/list/Lk2zPs I think it's 570$ but you will be happier Later. Either way your build Will handle all the games at 1080p ultra but the games that require the GPU ram might max out medium to high witch is why I say the 6gb would be worth the extra bit :) I also changed the psu I forgot. Cheaper and better.

Change the hdd to the WD Caviar Blue 7200 1tb it's slightly cheaper and much better also you may want to look into a 4gb rx 480 or 470

I'd upgrade the PSU to a Corsair RM550x, the HDD to a WD black series because they have a really long live span, better than a blue or caviar blue. Personally I stay away from gigabyte MB's because of past experience, but that's up to you.
