I still haven't got up the nerve to start building my own pc. doesnt matter how many youtube vids or articles I read. that being said what would you say is good/bad about this build. and what should I look out for when building a pc?

AMD cpu gaming builds are not recommended atm due to their imminent next gen architecture (codename zen, apparently available to consumers late this/early next year) not being compatible with their current am3+/fm2+ mobos. You're buying into something that's already obsolete basically.

I usually push for a gold rated psu, they cost more upfront but you save in the long run via a cheaper electricity bill.
