The build's pretty good, but you can get better performance for the money..

You are going to use a dedicated graphics card, so you should pick a CPU which isn't an APU, because you won't use the integrated GPU.

Changed the power supply to a cheaper one, to save some money.

The two extra cores should help in video rendering and the better GPU should give a performance boost in gaming.
