Fairly new, just need some quick tips and advice. All criticism is appreciated.

So I recently decided to start building a new computer and started picking out my parts last night. I built a rig a little over 3 years ago when I was still in high school. By now all of my parts are old and probably nearing the end of their life since I'm on it just about everyday. So I've taken to building myself a new one. I already have a few parts at home that are from my old computer and I did have a hard limit I put on myself of around $1300. I thought this was a good entry level computer since I'm still in college. I mainly want to know if the CPU, GPU, RAM and mother board would run well together. Any changes, ideas or advice would be amazing to hear since I haven't been reading up on this stuff for the last 2 years. Thanks in advance! http://pcpartpicker.com/list/vmNNyf

If you need/want an i7 then there is room in the budget. Also added a good PSU.

Thanks for the change up. I'll start looking into those parts as soon as possible.

Thanks for the change ups. This looks like a great list. I'm not worrying too much about the PSU since my old one is in the 500W range that also has a bronze certificate. So I think that'll do nicely. Thanks again.
