Yikes, that's barely readable now... And could have been done as a 1kb text file anyway.  But I digress.

Although hardly an expert in gaming systems myself, two red flags stood out:
1) use of an i3 CPU (pick an i5 instead, i3 will suck for many games - downgrade the video card if necessary to make budget fit)
2) deliberately choosing a motherboard and a video card from direct competitors (suggest getting them from the same mfgr to avoid conflicting "optimizer" utilities)

Other thoughts:
- the PSU can probably be whatever generic crap NewEgg sells this week without making much difference

That's all for now,
