It's alright I guess. I'd go for a higher end GPU, like a r7 260x. That 7770 will kinda get rekt by 1080p in most triple A titles (BF3, BF4, Metro 2033/Last Light, etc...) unless you play medium-low. Other than that, build is alright :)

Np :) If you want my Skype if you're getting into this thing (I'm an AMD guy btw myself and have built a few PC's with the FX 6300) feel free to PM me :) Happy Building!
