Around $750 Teen's First Build

First Build. Budget is around $750. It is for gaming, A little recording, which is why I went with an Nvidia GPU, streaming and light video editing. I have already purchased the CPU, memory, Optical Drive and PSU. I have a Mouse and Monitor, and the OS is a gift. The only thing I would need is a keyboard which isn't part of the budget.. This is my replacement for a Next Gen console :) Please say anything if you want. Suggestions = welcomed. BTW i might go with the Fractal Design Define R4, if i get a little more money. I'm 15 so I don't have a job, and It is my first build ever!!

If you have anything to say about the build please say it in this post! Anything is welcomed!!!!!!!!

P.S Went with AMD because they are good CPU's for budget build. Went with Asus board because have read great reviews about them, and it has UEFI bios and onboard USB 3.0. Also Gigabyte GOU because it has good cooling and great Core clock rate.

This build is great for the price very very similar to what my friend caleb is getting the 8320 is a great cpu btw blows some i5s out of the water and if silence is important to you or if you just want a amazing case i would go with the r4 definitely its a great case but if you wanted more room for upgrades go with this case its basically the R4s big brother( but yea if you want to know any thing else just ask i picked all the parts out for my friend Caleb he should be getting it in a few weeks and for your first build you chose wisely :D

Build looks pretty good.  No complaints.  Just don't overclock too hard on that board.
