so i have some money i have saved + some money from my b-day, and i made this gaming pc. i'm a little over-budget and i need a second opinion. How does this build look? Are there any potential bottlenecks? and is there anything that i can cut back on to make the price cheaper. i play alot of TF2, and i want to play on ULTRA settings, but i also want to play many newer titles on ULTRA settings. thanks in advance!

if you're putting this much money into a gaming rig you should prolly go with intel
