Hello Everyone,

this will be the first build and i was looking for some improvement i could make. the main purpose of this build will be more of graphic design and gaming but not too extreme. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/gXJC4D also willing to spend an extra $50-100 on top of the current budget listed on the build to make some changes if any recommendation.

Here you go. Bit of an upgrade without sacrificing really anythnig as far as I can tell... Even got the price down. You'll have to lower the timings down on the RAM to 1600 but no problem there.
