Helping my friend build a PC

So my friend wants to build a computer. I have only built one once, with the help of my cousin. (with the exception of in the 8th grade) This is basically what he wants the computer to be: Budget: 700 (including everything). - If it's a little over, it's ok. Needs: - Wants to play League of Legends. - Be able to record games while he plays. - Play pokemon/GBA roms.

So I kinda threw this together with this site. I'd like some suggestions/improvements/un-needed things. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/icefireman99/saved/cDcypg

If the link doesn't work:

CPU: AMD A8-5600K 3.6GHz Quad-Core Processor Motherboard: MSI A88XM GAMING Micro ATX FM2+ Motherboard Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws Z Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-2400 Memory Storage: WD cavair blue 1tb 3.5" 7200RPM internal Videocard: EVGA GeForce GTX 650 1GB Case: Rosewill CHALLENGER ATX Mid Tower Case Power supply: Corsair CX 430W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply Optical Drive: Samsung SH-224DB/RSBS DVD/CD Writer Operating system: Windows 7 Home Prem. (64bit)

Thanks and I hope someone can help!
